Rotterdam is a city that has a lot of unique places to visit. With its rich history and diversity make sure to add this city to your travel plans! The bombardment and reconstruction, and the drive to innovate make Rotterdam a fascinating place to visit. Everything seems possible here, and there’s so much left to explore. Is Rotterdam a must-see city? Absolutely! We would love to take you on a private Rotterdam tour.
Most of Rotterdam’s medieval buildings were reduced to rubble during WWII. Therefore the citizens were free to create a utopian urban space that celebrates the best of modern Dutch architecture. And only 30 minutes away, you can visit the seat of the Dutch Government at the Hague. Take a private Rotterdam tour and enjoy exploring this innovative city with one of our local guides.
Things to do in Rotterdam
If you’re not afraid of heights, ride the elevator up to the top of Euromast, a 185m glass-walled tower offering a 360-degree view of the city below. You may wish to visit a couple of Rotterdam’s fine museums for a glimpse of the city’s pre-war history.
Unlike most art museums, Kunsthal only presents temporary exhibitions and doesn’t actually own a permanent collection. This means that its content is constantly changing and allows the museum to focus on cutting-edge, innovative or underappreciated artwork.
Windmills at Schiedam
Around 50 gigantic windmills were built in Schiedam during the 17th and 18th centuries in order to provide grain for the city’s booming jenever industry. Eight of these machines have survived until the present day and are collectively recognised as the tallest windmills in the world.
