The story of the city, the bombardment and reconstruction, and the drive to innovate that locals still use today to shape their city all make Rotterdam a fascinating place to visit. Everything seems possible here, and there’s so much left to explore. Is Rotterdam a must-see city? Absolutely!

Not only does the city host many different festivals (not just in sultry summer, but also in the icy winter months), Rotterdam’s festival organisers also demonstrate daring and a drive to innovate in the programmes they design.Check out all the festivals
