Ukraine: find the latest information regarding the ongoing situation and emergency traveling to the Netherlands

Rotterdam, better than ever!

We have not been idle in Rotterdam. You can see, hear and taste that in every corner of the city. We’re more than ready for you to come visit us. You don’t have to take our word for it, you can see it in this video.

Do Rotterdam like a local

For local delicacies, visit the Rotterdamse Oogstmarkt, a delicious and sustainable farmers’ market on Noordplein. Look for yourself in the 1664 mirrors of Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, the very first public art depot in the world. Take a watertaxi to Marconistraat: the port industry can still be felt here, alongside the new Makers District M4H, which houses a lot of creatives (Studio Roosegaarde, Atelier Van Lieshout). Rent a bike to explore the area, take a look at the Floating Farm where futuristic farming takes place. Then visit the nearby Weelde, a creative free state where you can stop for a drink and a snack. The most beautiful park is Het Park at the Euromast, where lush greenery and iconic architecture meet right next to the city centre. When visiting Het Park, don’t forget to stop by the hidden historic gardens of Schoonoord. More local tips? Check

Rotterdam Rooftops 🏒
Rotterdam has the flattest roofs in the Netherlands, partly as a result of the reconstruction. Why leave it unused? To a Rotterdammer, an empty roof is like a blank canvas where your imagination is the limit. From greening and energy generation to recreation: even roofs offer room for innovation and experimentation 🧠🀘🏼 Check out our #linkinbio and visit our fantastic Rotterdam rooftops β˜€οΈπŸŒ³

Construction Day Rotterdam: city of innovation πŸ—οΈπŸ’
Full of energy and with an urge for innovation, Rotterdam reinvented itself after the bombing in the Second World War. Only four days after the bombing, the reconstruction process began πŸ“

18 May 1947 was the first official Construction Day. We made a clean break with the past and preferred modern architecture: light, air and space. It was a ground breaking idea for its time. Every year on 18 May we celebrate Construction Day in Rotterdam. This year we celebrate 75 years of reconstruction πŸŒ†πŸ‘·

Check out for all the events during Construction Day πŸ—οΈ
