Rotterdam is a bustling port city that is quickly becoming the hip place to visit in the Netherlands.

In amongst the historical landmarks are some amazing structures of architectural and engineering wonders, it also has some fascinating museums and a culinary scene that foodies will swoon over.

Things to Do in Rotterdam

It’s time to introduce you to the top attractions in the city!

Take a River Cruise

Sit back and relax as you wander down the Rhine River and take in the Rotterdam skyline from the Willemsplein. Don’t forget to look out for the steamship, Rotterdam, a former cruise ship from Holland America Line.

Marvel at the Incredible Modern Architecture

If you’re into architecture, the most famous buildings in Rotterdam are the myriads of buildings known as the Cube Houses, which were built near Station Blaak.

Have a Picnic at Het Park

The park was built in 1852 and has a lush English landscape garden design about it. You can laze on a large open lawn or try your luck at miniature golf.

Check out the Museums in Rotterdam

My personal favourite is the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, an art history museum containing artworks from the 14th- 16th centuries.

Explore The Neighborhoods in Rotterdam

The suburb of Kralingen is well worth a visit, as it still retains many of the traditional old Dutch buildings and is a merry mix of students and the wealthy.
