“Wonderful city to explore - old and new”

City and harbourwalk
Ranked #19 of 67 Tours in Rotterdam
Attraction details
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Rotterdam is a very interesting city to explore with lots of new interesting architecture and some older buildings which did survive WW2. Easy to walk around, just be careful of the bikes and trams. Plenty of shopping and restaurants downtown to select from. Glad to have time to explore. Rotterdam is more of a business city than a tourist city, but still lots of fun.

Rotterdam is a very walkable place. Be it through the Lijnbaan shopping street or by the harbourside (both the new and old harbour) or right through Museumpark, you will be awed by the architecture and atmosphere.

The city is approximately 20 mins from the Airport, Bus 33 takes you there for a roughly 4 euros and runs quite frequently.

There are lots of shops and bars and has a great plaza just across the road from the station.

Lots of tall buildings and beautiful designed hotels. The area is calm in the day and nightlife is great too. Trains run 24hrs into Amsterdam.

We visited Rotterdam for a day and would probably have benefitted from a 2 day stay. The city is quite spread out and to see all the attractions in a day is very difficult. We walked around 10 miles in the day and still missed some attractions.

There is a wonderful blend of old and new buildings, and some of the modern architecture is fascinating, especially down by the river. Some lovely little coffee shops around the town centre.

Rotterdam is a very beautiful modern city. As it was destroyed during the war they had to rebuild a lot and new buildings are impressive. There are a lot of small restaurants everywhere. You can find a lot of atractions as well. And it is not too busy.
