Rotterdam, an outdoor museum of architecture

More information
 

If Amsterdam seduces you, Rotterdam surprises you!

The second biggest city in the Netherlands, Rotterdam is considered as an outdoor museum  of modern architecture. Totally rebuilt after the bombing in the Second World War, new Rotterdam is a city of avant-garde architecture, with futuristic lines, quite unlike the other old European metropolises. The famous Erasmus Bridge, spanning the Maas River, is its symbol.

 

A European cultural hub, a potential rival to Paris or London, the Nieuwe Binnenstad or New Rotterdam city hosts numerous theatres and some of the country’s major museums, including the famous Boijmans van Beuningen museum.
 

Rotterdam is known as a dynamic, innovative and happening city, with a very trendy nightlife scene, a city in rapid expansion, that flows along with the current.

This city of contrasts can be discovered on foot, by boat and bicycle, making it an ideal destination for a stay that is 100% contemporary, for a festival week-end of nights with a difference, or for shopping.
