Things to do

Rotterdam is the second largest city in Holland and is nothing like any other Dutch city. Thanks to its impressive skyline Rotterdam is nicknamed “Manhattan on the Meuse”. Most attractions have a strong connection to water, such as the reconstruction of the 18th century warship ‘De Delft’, the historic vessel ‘De Rotterdam’ and the Spido tours through the port of Rotterdam. Fun fact: Rotterdam’s international port is Europe’s biggest harbour and among the world’s top five biggest harbours. You can also visit the Euromast panoramic tower and Rotterdam Zoo (Diergaarde Blijdorp). It is an architectural and cultural metropole with countless attractions, festivals and museums.


Fashion shopping in Rotterdam

If you like fashion, Rotterdam is the perfect place for you. The elegant shops in the city centre are open seven days a week. There you can find anything you may fancy: from casual to sophisticated, from retro tu futuristic, from international brands to niche boutiques.
