What sights are there in Rotterdam? The first things that come to mind are the Market Hall, the Cubic Houses or the Euromast Tower. A boat tour of the port is also almost mandatory when travelling to a seaport city. But there is so much more to the city and we would like to show you a little bit of that.
Like many other bigger cities of touristic interest Rotterdam, too, has a Welcome Card visitors can purchase. We picked one up for the first three days of our trip and give you the breakdown if it was really worth it.
We noticed that public transport is working really well in Rotterdam. There are buses, the metro and trams that connect the different parts of the city.
Getting to see Rotterdam from above is easy. All it takes to enjoy the wonderful view is a trip up the Euromast Tower.
The ss Rotterdam lies in a harbour basin. The former passenger ship is now a hotel, restaurant, event venue and museum.
It was crystal clear that we had to capture (aka visit) and explore the ship. But before, we wanted to find out why the ship has the “ss” in her name. The internet had the answer, “ss” stands for steamship.
