Autumn in Rotterdam

Autumn is normally the time of year when the cultural season gets underway. Things are different this year because of COVID-19. There are, however still some exhibitions, festivals and shows you can visit safely in Rotterdam. And if you take a walk in one of the Rotterdam parks, you’ll see that autumn cannot be stopped by corona.

Cultural season

Because of COVID-19, autumn is, unfortunately, not packed with events this year. A couple of film festivals and theatre shows are still happening, as are most exhibitions. The cinemas and most attractions are also open, but remember to keep your distance and that wearing a mask is advised.

Autumn walk

Venture out in the open air at a safe distance of 1.5 metres this autumn, the best time of the year to take a walk in the forest. The beautiful autumn colours dominate the many parks that Rotterdam has to offer, such as the Kralingse Bos and Het Park at the Euromast. Children can pick chestnuts, leaves and acorns, and dogs can roll in the wet grass. If you cycle, you can combine several parks in one day. For a breath of fresh air, visit Rotterdam Beach, better known as Hoek van Holland.
