Cycling in and around Rotterdam

Cycling in and around Rotterdam

It’s great cycling in Rotterdam and the surrounding areas, and you can – literally and figuratively – go in every direction: admire the architecture of the city, get windswept along the water, discover the port of Rotterdam or enjoy nature in the parks and outdoor areas. Good to know: Rotterdam has 600 kilometres of cycle paths and is part of the cycle junction network. In the city are several free bicycle parking areas where you can also charge your electric bike. No bike with you? Then hire one from a bike rental company.

There are also several cycle maps available or on sale at Rotterdam Tourist Information, like Discover Rotterdam. This guide includes two cycling routes. The best of West (14-km) takes you from the city centre deep into the heart of Rotterdam-West. Noord explored (17-km) shows you all the highlights of Rotterdam-Noord.
