Airport travel guide

Best known for its industrial acumen, Rotterdam is home to one of the largest and richest ports in Europe. That wealth has trickled down to other fields of life, however, so Rotterdam is also a cultural hub with high quality museums and plenty of historical heritage. Better yet, the city is also just a short drive away from other famous Dutch destinations like The Hague and Amsterdam. These are some of the best places and tours in Rotterdam:

  • SS Rotterdam. The ship, Holland-America Line's former flagship, is the Netherlands' largest ocean-going steamer ever built. It is now a hotel with its original 1950s interior and artwork intact, permanently moored in Katendrecht. The ship offers regular hotel facilities, and its public restaurants and areas are open. Tours are available on the website to experience life onboard.
  • Euromast. The Euromast observation tower in Rotterdam offers stunning panoramic views from its 185-meter height. You can see the city, The Park, Erasmusbrug, and the architecture of the port. The tower features a brasserie; two suites are available for overnight stays. The Euromast is open from 9:30 a.m. (in summer) / 10:00 am (in winter) to 10:00 pm, with an entry fee of €9.75 (25% discount with the Rotterdam Welcome Card). Advanced ticket booking is also an option on their website.
  • Rotterdam Architecture Walking Tour. A local architect leads thois tour in Rotterdam and showcases the city's most significant architectural landmarks. The tour covers iconic structures such as the Timmerhuis, the Lijnbaan, and the Markthal, starting at the recently constructed central station. The guide will also provide historical and cultural insights into the city's daily life and highlight notable new riverbank developments. The tour ends at the Erasmus Bridge, a modern symbol of Rotterdam.
