Rotterdam is a lively city that offers a multitude of cultural activities and creative talent. All year round, you can visit a wide variety of festivals and extraordinary theatre performances. When you combine this with the numerous shops, bars, restaurants, museums and architectural achievements the city has to offer, it is easy to see Rotterdam’s appeal.
The port of Rotterdam is not just the largest in Europe, but also one of the most important harbours of the world. Many inhabitants of Rotterdam have worked in the port at some point during their lives. It should therefore not surprise you to learn that the creed of a real Rotterdammer is to “shut up and get busy.” However, the people of Rotterdam also know how to enjoy themselves, throw a party and relax. These two extremes go together very well, and this is exactly what gives Rotterdam its unique character. It’s a down-to-earth cosmopolitan city with international appeal.
