Rotterdam is a big, modern, vibrant and full of options. It is the city of skyscrapers and the largest port in Europe, the Port of Rotterdam. There you will also find a variety of interesting museums and attractions. In addition to all this, there are great shopping centers. As it is a big city, Rotterdam deserves a longer visit, of at least two days. One of the city’s must-see attractions is the cruise through the Port of Rotterdam.

You will browse the shipyards, the docks and see the incredible number of containers that arrive and leave the port daily.
