If you are a fan of incredible architecture, the city of Rotterdam will truly not disappoint! With its beautiful and ever changing skyline, this city provides a multitude of attractions, historical museums, and entertainment in and around the city center. There are also many places to enjoy fine cuisine dishes from around the world after a day of site seeing. If you enjoy a trendy nightlife setting, sophisticated shopping centers and a very artistic take on things; Rotterdam is definitely worth the visit! Here are a couple must see sites when visiting!
The first worthwhile visit to Rotterdam should take you to Museumpark, where two of the best and most unique museums call home. Both the Boijmans van Beuningen and Kunsthal museums are quite sophisticated, and contain art from some of the world’s most renowned artists including Van Gogh, Leonardo Da Vinci, Rubens and more! With over 140,000 pieces of art, Boijmans van Beuningen is acknowledged to be the most important collection in the world. Take a journey from the Middle Ages all the way to present times! If you decide to head to the Kunsthal, be prepared for an adventurous and progressive time! Covering many facets of art including experimental art, photography and design, you will most always be surprised to what this unique museum has to offer.
If you are not afraid of heights, this next attraction is one of Rotterdam’s main features and icons. The Euromast is a giant tower that was designed in 1960 and is still extremely popular today. Take a quick whirl up to the platforms on the super fast automatic lifts and enjoy one of the most spectacular views! On a clear day, you can even see The Hague and Antwerp (in Belgium)! If you are an extreme adventurist, you can abseil down the entire structure! Remember to book reservations in advance, as this is an extremely popular way to get down. If abseiling down the building is not quite your cup of tea, instead you can enjoy a romantic dinner at the top of the tower, sleep overnight in one of the suites, and wake up to the gorgeous view.
Rotterdam is a city packed full of beauty, excitement and innovation. Between the hip and trendy nightlife mixed with amazing architecture, museums and more, this wondrous city surely puts on many faces. It is a place where people can both relax and be active.
