If you're coming from Amsterdam Centraal, Rotterdam Centraal is like a breath of fresh air. Spacious, modern and clean, it's less confusing. The layout is pretty straightforward as it just goes end to end, so finding your platform is very easy.

It has a lot of affordable eateries like Julia's Cucina Italia, Burger King, Doner Company, HEMA, among others.

But what makes it standout is the impressive modern architectural design of the station, it's distinct wedge shape is worthy of many snapshots.

Rotterdam Central Station is not directly to compare with Paris Central Station but it is well organized and easy to find information.
There are, also, few shops and places to eat inside the station which makes the waiting hour bearable. The station is well connected to cities in Netherlands and Belgium which is very good.
It was not possible to buy tickets with card if you would like to buy it from the desk which felt a bit old fashion.

The station with its lovely modern design has loads of shops and eateries but only one toilet! There is a very large screen TV and an interesting shadow man opposite it. Big square in front with trams at the side and empty space in front. Trains all on individual platforms. Very impressive and a lovely addition to the city.

Beautifully done and very comfortable station with lots of cafes, fast food and small shops. The train station is very-very long and unfortunately only one toilet for the whole station not in the middle, but at the very start. There is a tourist info centre where you can ask anything you like. They are very good at explaining. City maps also available.
