Rotterdam, the second largest city in the Netherlands and one of the world’s largest and most important ports! At the South Holland province and part of the Randstad conurbation, Rotterdam is the perfect destination if you are looking for cheap air tickets to a culture and art-loving European hub. Beautiful landmarks, fantastic views and a lively, vibrant nightlife is what you’ll get if you visit Rotterdam. Organise your trip and find cheap hotels in Rotterdam for your accommodation and feel free to enjoy this marvellous Dutch city!
With a population of nearly 620,000, Rotterdam has gone through some rough times over the years. Bombed by the German forces and destroyed almost to the ground, fortunately Rotterdam managed to survive and today it’s one of our favourite European travel destinations!
Rotterdam has Europe’s largest and the world's second busiest port, following Shanghai.Visit Rotterdam to get to know a city as popular as Amsterdam and equally beautiful, but in its own, unique way. More charming for some, more interesting for some others and definitely more peaceful, it will offer you unforgettable memories!
Rotterdam’s international airport (Rotterdam The Hague Airport) is located 5.6 kilometres northwest of Rotterdam and 20 kilometres southeast of The Hague. It is accessible from Rotterdam by the airport metro line RandstadRail, by bus No. 33 and by taxi.
Getting around Rotterdam
You can get around Rotterdam by bus, metro (5 lines), tram (7 lines) and water taxis (with a capacity of 8 passengers). Fares start at 2.50€ and water taxis tickets cost from 2.90€ to 6.70€.
You can also get around Rotterdam by bike, the most popular means of transport.
Wander around Rotterdam’s streets on foot or, even better, rent a bike. In Rotterdam everyone has one!
Start at the city centre and the Plein 1940 square. The imposing sculpture of the “Destroyed City” (De verwoeste stad) dominates the square, a work by Ossip Zadkine created in 1953 to commemorate the bombings by the Germans.
Explore the area around the square, enjoy a coffee, tea or drink at a café and visit the Maritime Museum to know all about the country’s naval history.
Next stop, Rotterdam’s most popular – and probably most photographed – landmark, the Cubic Houses! Built in 1984 by Piet Blom in an unusual architectural cubic style, the buildings greatly resemble trees and give a sense of a small village within the city. Some of them serve as galleries and are open to the public.
To see the city from above, climb up the top of the Euromast tower. This is the city’s tallest building and offers great panoramic views. Gazing at the horizon, you will see the Erasmus Bridge or “The Swan”, as it is called due to its shape.
To get a glimpse of old, pre-war Rotterdam, head to the Delfshaven, a historic borough of Rotterdam that is, up until today, very well-preserved.
You cannot leave Rotterdam without visiting the Museumpark, where some of the city’s most interesting museums are located, some of which are:
- The Boijmans van Beuningen Museum, with amazing contemporary art collections
- The Natural History Museum, housed in the Villa Dijkzigt pavilion
- The Kunsthal Museum, hosting more than 20 exhibitions of contemporary art
If you’re a sports fanatic, Rotterdam is the ideal place for you; the Rotterdam Marathon, the World Port Tournament and the World Tennis Tournament are held there annually or every other year.Dutch is Rotterdam's official language, but you can communicate in English, Dutch, French or German with practically every resident of the city.
