Things to do and see in Rotterdam
You will also find many interesting attractions in the immediate surroundings of Rotterdam! These include Windkracht 4, Het Keringhuis and Stork Village Het Liesvelt, to name just a few.
At 185 metres high the Euromast is the place to go for the best view in town. The new super fast automatic lifts take you up to the platforms for a panoramic view over the whole of Rotterdam.
Reconstruction of "The Delft"
A great opportunity to observe, up close, the reconstruction of an 18th century wooden sailing vessel, The Delft, which set sail at the height of Dutch sea power. It’s not far from Delfshaven where the original was built, right on the banks of the Maas and Rotterdam’s Schiehaven harbour front.
Nieuwe Luxor Theatre
The Luxor Theatres is housed in a stunning modern building in the up and coming Kop van Zuid area. The programming is characterised by a long series of large-scale musical and cabaret productions. These will be interspersed with more modest concerts, operas, operettas and dance. It also has a repertoire catering for virtually every taste.
Spido Harbour Cruise
If you're sailing to Holland, it's worth getting an up-close view of the world’s largest port, by taking a 75 minutes harbour cruise. See the shipyards, docks and quays up close and be a part of the heavy traffic of seagoing vessels and inland sailing ships on a river that brought glory to Rotterdam.
The water links the southern and northern banks of the river Maas. Two regular services run from Wilhelminakade (near hotel New York on Kop van Zuid) to Veerhaven and Leuvehaven. The classical dark-blue wooden boats sail every day of the year. There is always a water taxi available to take you across the water.
Services run Mondays – Fridays from 8 am to 12 midnight, on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 am – 12 midnight.
