Rotterdam Central Station (Rotterdam Centraal) Tours and Activities

231 Reviews

As the main railway station of the city of Rotterdam and one of the most important transportation hubs in all of the Netherlands with over 110,000 daily passengers in 2007 (as many as Amsterdam Schipol airport), Rotterdam Centraal was just recently renovated and reopened in March 2014. Because it is

now connected to several high-speed networks in Europe and because of its proximity to Schipol airport, it is expected that the numbers of daily passengers will increase to 323,000 by the year 2025.

In terms of architecture, the station has already received the acclaim of the industry thanks to its bold yet efficient design – a nod to the city’s architectural heritage, which is famous for being edgy and resolutely non-traditional. One of the main changes from the recent renovations works is the difference

between the north and south entrances; one faces the residential Provenierswijk neighborhood and the other, a futuristic, skyscraper-ridden commercial district. The station was designed so that commuters feel the gradual evolution from a more modest northern entrance with plenty of natural light and green

spaces merging into a metropolitan, dramatic allure to the south as the stations opens up onto a large and lively public square and a 5000-bike parking.

Your bike or walking tour will be a true experience! We are 2 stewardesses with years of travel experience and know better than anyone how incredibly fun and insanely interesting it is to experience a city by bike or on foot with an enthusiastic local guide.

Such as a surprising inner garden in the center, an authentic food shed and trendy hidden alleys that will often remain unknown to many other visitors to Rotterdam, but which we, as true locals, would like to share with you. During this tour we will also introduce you to the nicknames of various statues and buildings that are so characteristic of Rotterdam residents. In short, after your trip you will feel like a real Rotterdammer.
