1. The Rotterdam Skyline.
Rotterdam definitely has the most beautiful skyline of the Netherlands.
2. The Markethall (‘Markthal’).
The best products from around the world will be sold here. The outside is covered with offices and apartments.
3. The Cubic Houses.
Indeed, these are real-life houses in the shape of cubicles. On of these crazy shaped houses can already be yours for only Euro. 165.000!
4. The Erasmus Bridge
The connection between the city center and Rotterdam south. The bridge is 139 metres high!
5. The Rotterdam city hall.
One of the few building which partially survived the World War II. The city hall is still in use. The highest point is 71 meters.
6. The Euromast
The Euromast is the highest building so far in Rotterdam, with the observation tower reaching 185 meters. The view over Rotterdam is incredible as the observation tower is spinning around at the top. With clear weather, cities as The Hague can easily be seen as well.
7. The Rotterdam
The Rotterdam is the largest building in the Netherlands with a total of 160.000 square meters. The highest point of this building is 149 meters. The N-How hotel is located at the 7th floor, with a great view over the river ‘De Maas’, and the Erasmus Bridge right in front of you.
8. Blijdorp / Rotterdam Zoo.
As shown below, the Rotterdam Zoo has a gorgeous sea tunnel with turtles, sharks and other fish swimming around and over you. Besides this, the Zoo provides all kinds of animals such as Lions, Elephants, Gorillas, a butterfly garden and many more.
9. Feyenoord – De Kuip
De kuip, the home stadium of Feyenoord Rotterdam, my team and pride.
De Kuip has a capacity of 51.000 people, which is sold out more or less every game.
Tickets can be sold as of Euro 17.50, and the tour can be done every Wednesday through Saturday. http://www.feyenoord.com/tickets/tour-tickets
10.St Laurens Church.
The St Laurens Church is one of the buildings which survived the WW II partially as well. The Church is 65 meters high, and the top can be reached by over 300 steps.
11. Rotterdam central Station
The new Rotterdam Central station was finished in February 2014. As you can see, it is another architectural building, which diversifies Rotterdam from the other Dutch cities.
12. Hotel New York
Hotel New York is one of the eye-catching building on the ‘Wilhelmina-pier’. The Hotel/Restaurant serves great high-teas, seafood and has a great terrace outside which can be best accessed by ‘Water-Taxi’, as many other place in Rotterdam (Water Taxi Rotterdam).
13. The Lijnbaan
The first ever car-free shopping street in Europe. The lijnbaan itself is only 510 meters long, but with many side streets and its end at the ‘Koopgoot’, the shopping facilities are more then great in Rotterdam. ‘Koopgoot’ is a typical Rotterdam sleng word, which literally means: Buying hole, as the street is made as an open tunnel to cross underneath the Coolsingel, the main street in Rotterdam.
15. Deliplein, Rotterdam
Personally, I think this is the best spot for food in Rotterdam. Deliplein definitely has the best places to eat, with restaurants as CEO de baas van het vlees, Delibird, De Matroos en het Meisje and many more.
From Deliplein, the Foenix Food factory is very easy accesible by foot ( 5 min walk). Foenix food factory is an old large storage house, which is converted into a small food factory with small local restaurants and producers of bread, beer, cider, sausages, cheeses and many more!
