There was a time that Rotterdam headed the wrong lists. The top positions in violent crimes, in unemployment and in lowest education level. However, times appear to have permanently changed. Rotterdam is mentioned and honoured on all fronts and tourists more an more know how to find the city. Rotterdam is hot!
The average Rotterdam citizen is no longer startled these days: coach loads of tourist jostle themselves at the numerous sights the city in the meantime shows and - similar to cities like Barcelona and Berlin - a real Hop on Hop off coach circles the city. And that is not in vain since Rotterdam has more and more to offer for Rotterdam citizens, for regional visitors and for people from other countries. It is not for nothing that world wide operating hotel chains open new branches in the city.
On this page you will find a small array of the cities' sights. For a more complete overview visit the site of Rotterdam Info (tourist information office).
