A nice modern building placed in a modern area of the town,beside other impressive skyscrapers.But nothing more...you don't need more than a few minutes to see it and take a few pictures.Another option to admire it is to take a Spido boat tour.

The Port of Rotterdam is massive!! I took a boat tour and saw the different areas from the water and I was amazed at just how huge the area is.

Great for cruise ships embarking, day port or disembarking. It is easy to get to from hotels and a short walk from the subway. It has been re done recently and now a few shops that sell top end souvenirs and bars.

its just something you've never seen before, go for 45 minutes with 100 km/h and all you can see is factories, cranes, pipes, metal. and then you get to an end, take a selfie and back home

We loved seeing this modern port of Rotterdam, which has been built from the ground up along the water front! There are many ways to see this part of the city, you can walk or take a ride on the water taxi.

If you have the time, take the one hour cruise of the busiest port in the world. It is about 25 miles long so you only get to see about one third of it but what a sight. The day we went, the ship Greenpeace was docked there and we discovered the floating hotel, the SS Rotterdam which after about... More

We had an hour long cruise through the busy Port of Rotterdam. Our Cruise boat was very modern and spacious, with commentary in English as well as Dutch. We were able to go on deck and view ships from all over the world. Excellent refreshments in the lounge area, with plenty of seating and big picture windows. A "must" for... More
