Highlights of a Free Tour in Rotterdam

Rotterdam is a dynamic, energetic and highly unusual European city. During WWII, the city was bombed flat by the Nazis, but the brave citizens used this sad canvas to quickly rebuild a multicultural modern city, home to the biggest harbor in the world. Join Free Tours in Rotterdam and discover how the second largest city in the Netherlands arose from the ashes! Walking the city center, travelers can’t miss the romantic Old Harbor, the Grote of Sint-Laurenskerk (the only remains of Rotterdam’s medieval past), Rotterdam Centraal Station, Erasmus Bridge, the super iconic Cube Houses, and the beautiful Witte Huis building. And do not leave without visiting Market Hall! It’s both a gigantic piece of art and a massive indoor market. Along your Rotterdam Free Walking Tour, you will certainly find at least one statue of Erasmus, the Dutch scholar that changed religion forever, as well as Pablo Picasso’s Sylvette sculpture.

Things to Do in Rotterdam

Incredibly but true, Rotterdam's coolest neighborhood is indeed called ‘Cool District’. This charming area has quiet streets lined with hundreds of pubs, eateries, art galleries and boutiques. It’s the place where all the locals hang out! So, if you want to find the best restaurants in the city or party all night long, just wander along the Witte de Withstraat strip and discover the cool vibe of Rotterdam! For serious shopping, we recommend Lijnbaan Street. This is the main commercial area, and boasts wooden canopies and interesting postwar architecture. It’s a good place to start familiarizing yourself with the cornucopia of different cheeses made in The Netherlands. There are many cheese shops to choose from, but the iconic De Kaashoeve has a great selection and reasonable prices. Finally, families will have a day of fun at the Maritime Museum. Just in front, there’s a harbor with a nice view and fun attractions.
