Book your journey in RotterdamNetherlands
Holland’s jazzed up port city
Rotterdam,a cultural dutch city along the water
Rotterdam is the world’s busiest port and a cosmopolitan gateway to the continent. It’s a forward-looking city, with ambitious angular architecture and an exciting art scene. Catch the flamboyant Zomercarnaval, summer highlight of a packed festival calendar, or just enjoy the vivacious nightlife scene.
Start your visit with one of the oldest monuments remaining in the port town, the City Hall. Its striking sculptures give us clues about the history of Rotterdam.
Still in the town centre, you will be amazed by the "cubical houses" or "tree-houses", built by Piet Blom. They are considered as a symbol of Rotterdam. If you don’t suffer from dizziness, take the elevator to the top of the Euromast, the highest observation tower in the Netherlands, and enjoy a magnificent view to Anvers in Belgium!
If you are an art lover, two museums must be discovered : The "kunsthal" and the "Boijmans Van Beuningen", both located in the Museumpark.
