Destination Rotterdam, the most modern city in the Netherlands

The time has come to tick destination Rotterdam on the Bucket list and to visit the most modern city in the Netherlands – Rotterdam.

The first time I visited Rotterdam it amazed me. It’s spacious, modern, exciting, hosting the biggest port in Europe, Rotterdam is often compared to Dubai because of its modern architecture and skyscrapers. The second biggest city in the Netherlands has a lot to offer in terms of how to spend an unforgettable time in Rotterdam!

First stop The cube houses (Kijk Cubus)

The cube houses (Kijk Cubus) are located right above the Blaak Metro Station and are for me the highlight of Rotterdam’s architecture. They are so cute with their extraordinary forms! You can even book a guided tour inside! Check here for more information. Take the time to walk around and admire them.

Next comes Euromast and Erasmus Bridge.

Not much to say here. Just buy a ticket, go to the top and make an awesome selfie!

Unesco World Heritage Windmills reserve – Kinderdijk

I find Kinderdijk much bigger, less crowded and more impressive than Zaanse Schans. Check it out and decide for yourself. You can easily get there from Rotterdam by public transport.

Kunsthal Park

There is a little park in the area between Euromast and Rotterdam Central Station. It’s located around the Kunsthal. You can have a walk on your way back (if you are not staying in Rotterdam) and make some fun pictures with the metal rabbits sculptures all around!
