Many things are of course still closed, but don’t worry: on this brand new spring page you will find inspiration for what can be experienced in Rotterdam at a safe distance from each other!

As you might already know, in the Netherlands we all love to move around by bike 🚲. Due to the growing number of cyclists in Rotterdam, almost 75.000 bicycle parking spaces will be needed by 2040. The city center of Rotterdam will therefore start expanding this year. In total, there will be 1500 to 2000 additional spots to park your bike. Hooray 🎉⁠
