Rotterdam

Rotterdam has become increasingly popular over the last few years. The city is an excellent venue for congresses, fairs and other events catering to the business sector, NGOs and associations. Not only because of the multitude of great facilities and attractive business locations, but also because of the huge range of leisure activities on offer in Rotterdam.

Experience

You have to really experience Rotterdam. You can do this from a number of perspectives. Experience Rotterdam as a port city, for example. Nowhere else in the Netherlands is the port such an integral part of the city as in Rotterdam. This is obvious to the visitor from all the things going on around the water and indeed on it. You can also experience Rotterdam as a cosmopolitan city. The more than 170 different nationalities living here add so much to what the city has to offer the visitor. Its multicultural cuisine is just one good example. Experience Rotterdam as a city of architecture. Its skyline is peppered with iconic buildings, glittering architectural jewels begging you to take a photograph. You can also experience Rotterdam as a city of festivals. Visitors can enjoy the internationally celebrated North Sea Jazz Festival, the International Film Festival Rotterdam or the multicultural festival, Robin Rotterdam Unlimited, to name but a few
