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.
It is such a strange feeling to walk underground knowing that huge ships pass right above your head. Exploring the Meuse Tunnel was a spontaneous idea and a really good one at that.
The Markthal is right in the centre of Rotterdam. It is a spectacular building that houses a mix of shopping mall, living spaces, restaurants, shops and car parks. Shoppers can browse the market on 7 days a week and try a variety of different foods.
A major point of interest in Rotterdam are the Cubic Houses near the big Market Hall. A must-see for fans of architecture and at the top of our Rotterdam to-do list.
