Rotterdam is a dynamic, fast-changing city that offers visitors to the city a wide range of lettings.

The area and getting around
Rotterdam is a fascinating port city located a short hop away by train from Amsterdam, but a million miles away from the tourists. Completely destroyed during the war, it was rebuilt from the ashes into what is perhaps the most modern and architecturally interesting city in Europe. A city of just under a million, it is divided into two by the river Nieuwe Maas with the downtown area, shopping, nightlife, museums and main sights concentrated in a small area to the north of the riverUnleash your inner cool
Appealing to the young and energetic, Rotterdam is a freakishly cool postmodern city. Don’t miss Delfshaven, just west of the centre, with some of the city’s most interesting architecture lining its charming historic docklands and canals. Witte de Withstraat is the heart of the city’s nightlife, with a plethora of restaurants, pubs, cosy cafés and stylish wine and cocktail bars that attract a varied crowd. Then there is the Cool District replete with yet more trendy bars and undoubtedly the best shopping in the city.
