Rotterdam... Make it happen!

Rotterdam is a young, global and very dynamic city, continuously renewing itself. From massive skyscrapers to trendy restaurants and food markets, from their world famous Port of Rotterdam to renowned museums... Rotterdam has it all! Add to that the many extraordinary attractions and city tours – by bike, bus, boat or on foot – and you understand why Rotterdam was voted Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel in 2016. Full of energy and innovation, Rotterdam reinvented itself after the bombing of the Second World War. It broke with the past and chose modern architecture. The motto: light, air and space, was ground breaking for that time. Rotterdam still embraces experimentation: almost anything is possible. Here, you are constantly surprised by new initiatives: from a rooftop city farm to a music festival in the harbour, from an exclusive rooftop bar to a brewery in an old warehouse. The city as it is today is a direct result of the can-do mentality of the Rotterdammers. Therefore, the city slogan "Make it happen" can be fully understood and felt in this vibrant city!
