Manhattan on the Maas
Located in the South Holland province, Rotterdam is one of the Netherlands' most lively cities, as well as one of the largest trading ports in the world. Take away the old-world culture of Amsterdam and add a postwar, postmodern influence--the sharp contrast of this city to other Dutch towns is a must-see for many tourists in the Netherlands. Its location on a channel of the Rhine and Meuse Rivers is its main advantage. as the direct route into the center of Europe makes it an important hub for international trade. Unfortunately, its location also made it a target during World War II, which destroyed most of the city. Modern architecture and ideals have rebuilt this city and attracted a highly diverse population. Almost 50 percent of the residents here are not native Dutch. As the second largest city in the Netherlands, you will not run out of things to do in this bustling place. Whether you only want to go to Rotterdam, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly The Netherlands trip planner.
