A. Aboutaleb, Mayor of Rotterdam:

Rotterdam is a dynamic metropolis, the ‘Gateway to Europe’. A city that is constantly reinventing itself. But above all, Rotterdam is a city you have to experience for yourself.

The story of the city, the bombardment and reconstruction, and the drive to innovate that locals still use today to shape their city all make Rotterdam a fascinating place to visit. Everything seems possible here, and there’s so much left to explore. Is Rotterdam a must-see city? Absolutely! More information about the city.

The Tour in Markthal

Architecture tour with a bite!

A professional guide explains all about the historic location of Markthal, the building & design, the concept and the construction of the huge glass facades. Let us amaze you with fun facts that you did not hear before! You will get a special look behind the scenes, for example in the underground logistic (cool) center. The tour travels along the Tijdtrap (Time Stairs) showcasing historic artefacts found during the excavations of the parking garage underneath Markthal. The guide will take you up to the walk-way on level +1, to experience the beautiful ceiling artwork to the fullest. The tour includes a ‘Meet&Taste’ with one or two entrepreneurs who love to tell about their work in Markthal.

Museum Boijmans van Beuningen

Visitors to the museum are often astonished by the wealth and variety of the collection. The scope and diversity are thanks to 1700 private collectors who have gifted no fewer than 50,000 objects in almost 170 years.

The museum contains old master paintings and sculpture, modern and contemporary art, decorative arts, pre-industrial household objects and industrial design. The collections of prints and drawings, early Netherlandish painting, Impressionism and Surrealism are among the best in the world.

When the Shutters Close

A selection of highlights from the collection will be on display in the galleries surrounding the Bauhaus Exhibition.

Social Activities

Visit the renewed Erasmus MC

Erasmus MC is the most innovative university medical center in the Netherlands and one of the world’s leading centers of scientific research. Moreover, their building recently got nominated as Best Building of the Year which is very extraordinary for a hospital.

On Friday 17th of May we will visit the Erasmus MC to see all new architecture, innovation and techniques.



Saturday 18th of May we will visit Schiedam. A historic municipality, part of the Rotterdam metropolitan area. It has some very nice canals to walk or cruis around and is well known for having the tallest historical windmills in the world. In addition, it is renowned for its production of Jenever. This production was the source of much of the wealth that built the city into what it is today.

We will visit the Jenever Museum to explore the Roots of Schiedam. In addition, we will visit the municipal museum of Schiedam where we will see the ‘Manzoni in Holland’ exposition. Manzoni is a famous artist. In the sixties he made art with his breath, canned his own crap, autographed bodies and invited people to stand on a pedestal. On that magic plinth everyone became a work of art, a living sculpture. His revolutionary approach made him one of the great innovators of the 20th century and his can of crap became an icon of avant-garde art.

Friday evening

A dinner in The Harbour Club: an almost hundred-year-old villa in one of the city parks of Rotterdam. An extraordinary location for an extraordinary restaurant! The ambiance is a lot like that of ‘The Boathouse Café’ in New York’s Central Park. Inside, the restaurant is styled as a rugged-looking modern day restaurant.

A visit to The Harbour Club is pure and intense enjoyment, guaranteed. High-quality cooking with a dash of playfulness, but always with an eye for detail. On sunny days, guests can lounge on the renovated luxurious patio.

Harbour Club Rotterdam


Saturday evening

Welcome on board of the SS Rotterdam! As the former flagship of the Holland-America Line, SS Rotterdam has sailed the seven seas. Today the ship is permanently moored in Rotterdam.
