Rotterdam is a city that you have to experience first-hand. A young, dynamic metropolis with an irrepressibly beating heart. A city that constantly reinvents itself at a high pace. Every time you visit, yet another addition graces Rotterdam’s already stunning skyline and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by a new cultural or sporting event. That makes Rotterdam a city that never runs out of things for you to discover.
From unparalleled shopping options, exotic food and beverages, and entertainment venues on land and in the water. The city where ideas are conceived, nurtured, shaped and come to fruition. Defined by famous and not yet famous locals. Where people diverse in origins, beliefs and visions converge in living, working, studying and creating together. That is Rotterdam. A city to discover and cherish.
