Things to Do in Rotterdam



Experience the city from above and learn all the fun facts and trivia about this special city. A visit to the Euromast is therefore fun and educational. After visiting the viewing platforms at 100 & 112 meters high, the rotating panoramic lift will take you to the top at 185 meters! This view is of course already a special experience, but there is much more to experience for young and old! 

Diergaarde Blijdorp is a household name in Rotterdam and beyond. Visit several continents in one day and become immersed in plant and animal life from around the world. Come face to face with the giraffes or visit the Oceanium.

Experience the most innovative port in the world! In the middle of the busy traffic of inland and seagoing vessels, you will experience a special tour through one of the largest seaports in the world. You will see the impressive skyline with imposing buildings glide past you, followed by a unique view of wharves, docks and the hypermodern transshipment of thousands of containers.

You play in PLAYWIJCK. Until you almost drop. Take the Haven playground with spray park: you're guaranteed to get soaked! And in the traffic garden you can drive around like a seasoned road pirate. Is it dog weather? Then rampage inside the House in the Hill. In DIERENWIJCK it is a real beastly mess. You hear that. You see that. And you smell that. To recover from all the running and romping, you can stretch out in WANDELWIJCK.
