One of them is ‘’Amsterdam to Party, Den Haag (The Hague) to Live, Rotterdam to Work.’’ Another one, which is more popular by the inhabitants of Rotterdam is ‘’Money is earned in Rotterdam, divided in The Hague and spent in Amsterdam. And another saying that reflects both the rivalry between Rotterdam and Amsterdam is ‘’Amsterdam has it, Rotterdam doesn’t need it.’’

In the first decades of the 20th Century, some influential architecture in the modern style was built in Rotterdam. Some notable buildings with this type of architecture are the Van Nelle Fabrek (1929), which is a monument of modern factory designed by Brinkman en Van der Vlugt, Feyenoord’s football stadium, De Kwip (1936), which was also designed by Brinkman en Van der Vlugt.

During the early stages of the Second World War the centre of Rotterdam was bombed by the Germans, which destroyed many of the older buildings in the city centre. After initial crisis re-construction the centre of Rotterdam has become the site of ambitious new architecture.

When you reach Rotterdam, you have to visit the Euromast. The Euromast is an observation tower, designed by Hugh Maaskant and it was constructed between 1958 and 1960. It is located at Parkhaven 20 and it was specially built for the 1960 Floriade and it has been listed as a monument since 2010.

The Euromast has a crow’s nest observation platform 96 metres (315ft) above ground as well as a restaurant. Originally, 101 metres in height, the Euromast was the tallest building in Rotterdam. Why not try some abseiling at the Euromast? Enjoy the only abseil in Europe where you travel downwards from 100 metres free in space.

Holidays or short city breaks to Rotterdam aren’t the same without visiting the Grote of Saint Laurenskerk (Lauren’s Church). You will definitely enjoy visiting this gothic building. Definitely bring the camera.

According to many locals, Laurenskerk symbolises Rotterdam’s history. During the Middle Ages, the inhabitants of this city were able to buy citizenship of the city by contributing 3,000 stones for the construction of the towers.

It is a charming and elegant building with an extraordinary ambience, which you have to see. It isn’t only visited by tourists or churchgoers, but the setting of Saint Laurenskerk is used to host concerts, exhibitions, parties and even lectures.

Lines D (light blue, formerly known as Erasmuslijn) and E (blue, also known as RandstadRail) share tracks between Rotterdam Centraal and Slinge and offer a north-south connection. Interchange between all lines is possible on Beurs station in the city center.

Lines A, B and C operate each every 10 minutes which allows 3-4 minute intervals on the main section between Schiedam Centrum and Capelsebrug. Lines D and E operate every 10 minutes, which give shorter intervals between Rotterdam Centraal and Slinge. There is a more frequent service during rush hours. The Rotterdam Metro operates from 5:30 until midnight.
