Ukraine: find the latest information regarding the ongoing situation and emergency traveling to the Netherlands

Rotterdam, mooier dan ooit!

We hebben niet stilgezeten in Rotterdam. Dat is te zien, te horen en te proeven tot in alle hoeken van de stad. Wij zijn méér dan klaar voor een bezoek van jou dan ooit. Dat hoef je niet van ons aan te nemen maar kun je gewoon zien in deze video.

Ontdek Rotterdam als een local

Bezoek de Rotterdamse Oogstmarkt voor lokale lekkernijen, een heerlijke en duurzame boerenmarkt op het Noordplein. Kijk in de 1664 spiegels van het Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, het allereerste openbare kunstdepot ter wereld. Neem een watertaxi naar de Marconistraat: de havenindustrie is hier nog voelbaar, naast het nieuwe Makers District M4H, waar veel creatieven (Studio Roosegaarde, Atelier Van Lieshout) zijn gehuisvest. Huur een fiets om de omgeving te verkennen, neem een kijkje bij de Floating Farm waar futuristische landbouw plaatsvindt. Bezoek daarna het nabijgelegen Weelde, een creatieve vrijstaat waar je kunt stoppen voor een drankje en een hapje. Het mooiste park is Het Park bij de Euromast, waar weelderig groen en iconische architectuur elkaar ontmoeten pal naast het stadscentrum. Vergeet tijdens je bezoek aan Het Park niet even te stoppen bij de verborgen historische tuinen van Schoonoord. Meer lokale tips? Kijk op

Congratulations for winning Shoutout Monday @journalofwonders 🏆🥇 If you love architecture, Rotterdam is definitely worth a visit. Historic buildings and characteristic post-war reconstruction architecture clash cheerfully with the hypermodern skyscrapers built in more recent decades 🌆🤍

Rotterdam Rooftops 🏢
Rotterdam has the flattest roofs in the Netherlands, partly as a result of the reconstruction. Why leave it unused? To a Rotterdammer, an empty roof is like a blank canvas where your imagination is the limit. From greening and energy generation to recreation: even roofs offer room for innovation and experimentation 🧠🤘🏼 Check out our #linkinbio and visit our fantastic Rotterdam rooftops ☀️🌳

Construction Day Rotterdam: city of innovation 🏗️🏢
Full of energy and with an urge for innovation, Rotterdam reinvented itself after the bombing in the Second World War. Only four days after the bombing, the reconstruction process began 📝

18 May 1947 was the first official Construction Day. We made a clean break with the past and preferred modern architecture: light, air and space. It was a ground breaking idea for its time. Every year on 18 May we celebrate Construction Day in Rotterdam. This year we celebrate 75 years of reconstruction 🌆👷

Check out for all the events during Construction Day 🏗️

Bombardement of Rotterdam: 82 years ago 💔
On 14 May 1940, in less than 15 minutes, a bombardment destroyed most of the city center. More than 30,000 buildings went up in flames and around 900 people died 🕊️🇳🇱

If you are an observant walker you might have seen some special tiles in the paving of Rotterdam that turn red in the evening 🚨 This Fire Boundary, known as the 'Brandgrens', marks the part of Rotterdam that was completely destroyed during the bombing of 1940. Want to know more? Through the Rotterdam Routes app you can walk the Brandgrens Route while local Winne tells you more about the history of Rotterdam🚶‍♀️🚶Check out our #linkinbio

Today, the bombardement will be commemorated in front of Ossip Zadkine’s poignant statue ‘The Destroyed City’ 🕊️🙏🇳🇱
