Flat in Rotterdam, Netherlands

 

Rotterdam is very central for a lot of cities in Holland,
Amsterdam is 50 minutes by train or car.
The Central Station of Rotterdam is only 10 minutes walk from our house.
 
Utrecht is 40 minutes by train/car.
The Hague is 30 minutes by train/car.
Delft is only 15 minutes with the train/car.
Antwerpen (Belgium) is 60 minutes with the train/car.
 
From Amsterdam airport ( Schiphol) is it very easy to travel to our home with the train. Rotterdam airport is even easier: it is 10 minutes with the bus. The busstop is at the end of our street.

There is a lot to see and to do here. Rotterdam attracts a great deal of international interest as a city of architecture. A few square kilometres of the city centre offers a complete overview of what the twentieth century has produced in terms of modern architecture. Appealing examples of pre-war architecture include the Van Nelle Factory and the Huis Sonneveld. The innovative and adventurous period after the war is expressed in such structures as the Groothandelsgebouw, the Cube houses, the Kunsthal, the Luxor Theatre and the Erasmus Bridge. Both specialists and interested visitors find what they are looking for in Rotterdam.

The city offers something for everyone: those who love the hectic bustle of the city or who want to rise up into the air or who want to look into the eyes of sharks, but also for people who are searching for the peace and beauty of nature. One of Rotterdam's main attractions is Diergaarde Blijdorp, the extensive zoo that includes the impressive Oceanium, where visitors can walk through the huge shark tunnel surrounded by sharks and giant tortoises. Diergaarde Blijdorp is 5 minutes walk from our house!
A visit to Rotterdam would not be complete without a tour of the harbour on the Spido or a visit to the 185m-high Euromast. For an oasis of peace in the middle of the hectic city, visit the lovely gardens of Arboretum Trompenburg.
Cultural live is vibrant in Rotterdam. There is a broad selection of museums in Rotterdam. From modern art to historical treasures, from architecture to photography, from historical ships to exotic animals - just about anything you can imagine is displayed in a museum in the city.
Prominent museums include the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, the Netherlands Architecture Institute, the Kunsthal, the Wereldmuseum (World Arts Museum), the Maritime Museum, the Netherlands Photomuseum and the Historical Museum of Rotterdam. In addition, there are many interesting galleries and provocative expositions at locations such as the Las Palmas warehouse.
