Our blogs

At Rotterdam Tourist Information we like to tell you what’s going on in town. But rather, let others tell their story. Below you can read why our (inter) national bloggers love Rotterdam, what the favorite addresses of (known) ‘Rotterdammers’ are and where our employees like to come!

With an ever-present drive for action and limitless ambition, the leading position of Rotterdam entrepreneurs in sustainability is no surprise.

These sustainable initiatives inspire and provide fertile ground for new innovations. Rotterdam is growing certainly, but sustainably!
