City break: Rotterdam

01 January 2021

Welcome to Rotterdam! This major architectural city definitely belongs to our list of city trips. With its port, the Market Hall, the picturesque Central Station, and the Erasmus bridge, you'd think you covered all the highlights. But no, there are many more...

The Netherlands in Pictures

Anyone who likes looking through picture books has come to the right place. In the Nederlands Fotomuseum (Dutch Photography Museum), you can explore 166 archives of photographers from the 19th and 20th Century, as well as their contemporaries. Not only are they a pleasure to the eye, but you'll learn all about our history. And, should you want to learn more about the art, this is the ideal place to get acquainted with all aspects of photography!

Full of art

Rotterdam has an artistic atmosphere: the city is full of creative projects and there's no lack of museums. Having trouble deciding? Then visiting the Kunsthal (Art Hall) is always a good idea. Every week, there is something else to see there: from art and fashion to photography and science. The building itself is already remarkable. It was designed by the famous architect Rem Koolhaas, who is also responsible for the roof of the Central Station.

Like a local

A sightseeing tour like we Dutch would do it: on a bike! On this tour of Inside Rotterdam, you will see all the highlights and hidden spots of the real Rotterdam in 2,5 hours. For example, the guide will bring you to the historical Delfshaven, but will also show you cool street art. Prefer to choose a different route? Then you can also choose the Port, the Rotterdam Food, or the Rotterdam Highlights tour!

Hotspots in De Hofbogen

You won't be able to get around this one. De Hofbogen is the perfect place if you like catering, design and fashion, so there's something for everybody! The road was meant only as a connecting way between the centre and North Rotterdam. But for a number of years now, all kinds of trendy shops and restaurants can be found in the arches of the old railway viaduct.

Dot it like the Rotterdammers do

Dining Rotterdam style: you can, at the Fenix Food Factory on Katendrecht. They have their own brew pub here and you can taste typical Rotterdam beer. Learn all about the brewing process by ordering a tasting selection or by joining a tasting in the tasting room. Something to munch on? Go for the Beer and Cheese Tasting!
