Experience the Best of Rotterdam Tours and Activities
Known as the “Gateway to Europe,” Rotterdam is the Netherland’s second biggest city with its own distinct character. Like Amsterdam, the more famous city to the north, the city has its roots in the 13th century when a dam was built on the Maas River. Rotterdam is home to the largest port in Europe, modern cubed houses and architecture, as well as over 170 different nationalities of people. There are so many things to do in Rotterdam, including a variety of tours and activities that dive into the city’s unique history, heritage, and cultural significance.
From the Erasmusbrug bridge to the monumental watch tower of Euromast, Rotterdam’s modern architecture sets it apart from other cities in the Netherlands. While some of the century-old architecture can still be found in parts of the city, a World War II bombing that took place in 1940 forced the city into a reconstruction period which formed much of its contemporary skyline. You can learn more about the old and the new parts of the city during a walking tour. Another great way to get to know the city is through your taste buds. As a truly multicultural port city, Rotterdam food tours allow you to taste the diverse fare while learning more about the ingredients that make the city great. It also wouldn’t truly be a Dutch experience without hopping on a bike or boating through the waterways. Whichever mode of transportation you choose, be prepared to take in the beauty of an ever-evolving city.
