A modern city like Rotterdam has its residents and visitors a lot to offer in terms of sights, attractions and monuments. Who wants to see and do in Rotterdam what to do that will require at least a few days for it.
Rotterdam is best known for its container-clogged port, but in the past few years, more exciting projects have been dropping anchor. The Netherlands’ biggest building, a new “vertical city” called De Rotterdam, has become alive with cafés and restaurants, heralding a new dawn for the high-rise area locals have dubbed Manhattan on the Maas. Across town, the cavernous tube-shaped Market Hall is Rotterdam’s best snack stop, with a hundred food stalls selling everything from chewy waffles to giant balls of edam.
