Rotterdam Highlights

The city offers something for everyone: those who love the hectic bustle of the city or who want to rise up into the air or who want to look into the eyes of sharks, but also for people who are searching for the peace and beauty of nature. One of Rotterdam's main attractions is Diergaarde Blijdorp, the extensive zoo that includes the impressive Oceanium, where visitors can walk through the huge shark tunnel surrounded by sharks and giant tortoises. A coach trip to Rotterdam would not be complete without a tour of the harbour on the Spido or a visit to the 185m-high Euromast. Fun for the whole family can be had at the Plaswijckpark with its extensive playground, road safety training park and zoo. For an oasis of peace in the middle of the hectic city, visit the lovely gardens of Arboretum Trompenburg.

Erasmus Bridge
Built in 1996 this cable-stayed bridge spans across the New Meuse river. The futuristic, asymmetric and innovative design is over 800 metres long and also has a bascule bridge for bigger ships to pass through

Witte Huis
This 1898 building once used to be the tallest building in Europe with around 43 metres in height. It is a national monument and offers beautiful architecture. It was one of the few buildings to survive the Rotterdam Blitz.

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
The futuristic building houses the main art museum of Rotterdam established in 1841. The permanent exhibition displays works by the likes of Monet, Dali, Rembrandt or Kandinsky.

Netherlands Architecture Institute
Destroyed by the Blitz, Rotterdam needed to be rebuilt completely. Therefore it became home to this institute which today displays the largest architectonical collection and museums and exhibition galleries.
