Top 5 things to do in Rotterdam
The Maritime Museum is one of the largest of its type in the world with a huge collection of cartography, maritime memorabilia and art. The museum is located in central Rotterdam near the Markthal and the Cube houses.
Some of the interesting exhibitions include a controversial paiting of the Battle of Trafalgar, a collection of figureheads from various ships, different navy uniforms and flags from sea battles.
This really is a place full of interesting objects relating to the maritime world and the artefacts you can find here are world-class.
Also known as the Diergaarde Blijdorp, the Rotterdam Zoo had stood for many years despite having to change locations during WWII to avoid bombing. The zoo is in great condition and features a Botanical garden and Oceanium and also operates breeding programs to help endangered species such as the Red Panda.
The zoo is split into several different themed areas including a Chinese garden, a Malayan Forest, Mongolian Steppes and a crocodile river. Animals include the Black Rhino, Greater Kudu, Sumatran Tiger, Asian Elephant and the Amur Leopard. This zoo really is a fantastic place for both children and adults alike and the wide variety of enclosures and interactive elements will provide hours of fun.
The Markthal is a stunning piece of architecture that was constructed in 2009 and serves as both an office building and a marketplace. The design of the structure is quite unique with a large semi-circular grey façade and a large windowed section facing out to the surrounding courtyard. The inside of the structure has some amazing artwork by Arno Coenen and shows various colourful fruits, plants, insects and flowers.
The market section of the Markthal contains a huge array of shops, stalls, restaurants and bars such as a Tea bar, a tapas bar, a “world of drinks” shop and over 70 other different businesses. It really is a cool and vibrant place to explore and sample some find food and drink.
Rotterdam Boat Tour
A boat tour is the perfect way to see the fantastic harbours and ports of Rotterdam.
As the port is so extensive and huge, it is silly to try and walk around it yourself – A boat tour will provide a comfortable means of transport and you will learn a great deal from the tour guides.
There are many companies that provide boat tours, but one particular tour is the Spido Harbor Tour which last approximately 75 minutes.
The boats are really modern with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating and fantastic wide windows for unobstructed viewing.
You can also enjoy food and drink and the commentary is both in Dutch and English.
For a relaxing ad informative tour, this really is a great way to see the magnificent ports of Rotterdam.
Cube House Rotterdam
The cube house is as you would expect – A set of houses that are cuboid fashion.
This bizarre and eccentric housing block was designed by Piet Blom and the cubes that it is formed from are tilted at a 45 degree angle.
The cubes are like no other type of house you will see and they really are an interesting concept; it makes you wonder how the people living here cope with the strange angles of the walls and windows.
From afar the structure looks like some old 2D computer game and one of the cubes is open to the public so you can see what the interior is like.
