A Glimpse of Rotterdam
Images and a video of a very short trip to Rotterdam, Europe`s largest sea port and one of the most modern cities on the continent. Breathtaking skylines with stunning skyscrapers just next to traditional Dutch houses. One of the highlights is the ultramodern Erasmus Bridge designed by the famous Spanish architect Calatrava. Other major sites include the old White House next to a litte harbour with cafés and restaurants and the fancy cube houses. Modern architecture at its best! Don´t miss to visit the new and very impressive market hall with all kinds of food and delicatessen. A true paradise for foodies! You can easily visit all these sites on a comfy walk. In short - highly recommendable for a city break, also as an alternative to the crowded Amsterdam! International travelers are only beginning to discover this very interesting metropolis in the Netherlands. Rotterdam now belongs to my favorite cities for sure.
You can easily combine a city break in Rotterdam with a visit to one of the many fantastic beach resorts in the Netherlands.
