The Gateway to Europe
Rotterdam is Netherlands’ second largest city and is considered to be the one of the largest ports in the world and was even the busiest port in the world from 1962 - 2004. Rotterdam when combined with The Hague’s population is the largest in Netherlands.
Architecture in Rotterdam is definitive and can be considered an attraction it inself. One of the most famous examples of modern architecture are the cube houses built by Piet Blom found in Helmond. Rotterdam is home to the tallest residential building in the Netherlands called the New Orleans Tower, the highest office building, the Maastoren, and the Euromast, an observation tower.
One architectural wonder that is impossible not to see amid the magnificent buildings in the city’s cityscape is the Erasmusbrug or the Erasmus Bridge. The cable-stayed bridge is like a pearl in the night with its gleaming white asymmetrical pylon aptly earning the nickname, “The Swan” (“De Zwaan” in Dutch).
Architecture in Rotterdam is inspirational to travellers and tourists with its impressive modernist style. More of the modern architecture that Rotterdam boasts are the Rotterdam Centraal Station, the White House, the Van Nelle fabriek and Stadion Feijenoord (De Kuip) and the best thing about it is you can visit all of them with the help of your motorhome.
However, architecture is not all there is in Rotterdam. The city is also famous for the Diergaarde Blijdorp (Rotterdam Zoo) with a very large collection of animals; several theatres, museums and the Erasmus University Rotterdam, its major university which placed 29th globally and seventh in Europe.
