Rotterdam is a major port city in South Holland's Netherlands province. The vintage shops and exhibits of the Maritime Museum trace the history of seafaring in the region.
Rotterdam is a city with many faces: a rough harbor town, a trendy nightlife town, a fashionable shopping town and a chic creative town. Rotterdam is, above all, Holland's city of architecture that stimulates creativity.
Rotterdam is maybe not the first place you think of when planning a holiday in the Netherlands. But this modern city, while being a center of world trade and commerce, has plenty to offer tourists. After its modest beginnings as a fishing port in the 13th century, when the Rotter dam was first built
Its skyline continues to change. There's a lot to do between the skyscrapers of Rotterdam. You can go shopping, enjoy some delicious food, and visit a number of museums and attractions in and around the city center.
The city's best-known museums, and two of the most modern museums in Holland, Boijmans van Beuningen and Kunsthal, are housed in Rotterdam's Museumpark. You'll find even more museums and fun attractions elsewhere in town
One of Rotterdam's best shopping areas is the Alexandrium, it's a little way from the city center but worth a look, as it has a great range of shops and even bars and restaurants for a nice lunch. If markets are more your thing, you'd do well to visit the Blaak Market which has excellent street food and clothes, as well as beautiful displays and flower offerings.
Many world cities such as Barcelona, Copenhagen or Stockholm already know about the indoor market phenomenon. And Rotterdam now has one too! With an enclosed floor area of football pitch size full of fresh fish, meat and vegetable stalls and delicatessens. In other words, the perfect spot for real foodies who want to spend a day in a nice flavour
Indoor market Rotterdam has 100 sellers of fresh produce, 15 grocery stores and 8 restaurants. From fresh bread to tasty cheese, fish and poultry and even flowers and plants under one roof you'll find everything.
Rotterdam has fantastic nightlife as you'd expect in a modern city like this. You'll find Stadhuisplein near the center with several bars and clubs nearby and the "college field" where you can get a nice night out without breaking the bank.
In Rotterdam traveling by metro or tram is fast. The water taxi is a special means of transport which takes you to more than 50 spots in Rotterdam and the surrounding area at high speed.
If you decide that renting a car in the Netherlands is the best choice for you, then you should make sure that you check rates beforehand to ensure that you get affordable car hire services. You might even call a car rental service in advance so that it'll be waiting for you when you arrive at the airport.
