Rotterdam on the Water

With more than 50 moorings, the Watertaxi is a convenient and fast way to get around the city. And with the Watertaxi’s new Circle Line, you can tour the city’s best sights on weekends. If you would rather take the helm yourself, hire an electric sloop from iKapitein and sail around the city centre or through Delfshaven and enjoy the awe-inspiring views of the impressive skyline and lively city centre. You can also admire this fantastic view from the deck of the ss Rotterdam. Did you know that you can stay the night onboard the ss Rotterdam? Also fun; spend the night on a Wikkelboat, floating tiny houseboats located in the Rijn- and Wijnhaven.

On the Waterfront

The rivers Rotte, Schie and the majestic Maas, with its impressive harbours, give Rotterdam a unique character and vibrant atmosphere. To feel the city’s dynamism, try the De Maaskantine’s terrace or the versatility of the Fenix Food Factory on the Rijnhaven. Or take the metro to the beach in Hoek van Holland (Rotterdam Beach) and visit PLSTK, where you can enjoy delicious food while contributing to a more sustainable world. Sustainability is also a high priority at the vegetarian kitchen of Mecca on Noordsingel. Stop by and enjoy the warmth and hospitality that make this place so special. Around the corner from Mecca, on Noordplein, you can shop for ingredients for a culinary meal at the Rotterdam Harvest Market every Saturday.

Rotterdam Festival City

Rotterdam has an extensive festival offer throughout the year. In summer, these offerings reach their peak. From electronic music festivals that light up the night to colourful cultural events that bring the streets to life, there is something for everyone. For those who want to party all night, the Keilecafé in Rotterdam West has the atmosphere of a never-ending festival. A place where pizzas always seem to be baking in the wood oven and DJs keep spinning until the sun rises again. If you’re not careful, you’ll be intoxicated by the energy here.
