Rotterdam has been built on both sides of the river Nieuwe
Maas. One way to go from one bank to the other is to cross
the Erasmus Bridge, a landmark in the Rotterdam skyline
since 1996. The bridge connects the city centre with the
‘Kop van Zuid’, a new urban area with high-profile cultural
institutions, restaurants and luxury condominiums. The other
major project under construction in the South of Rotterdam
is the new Stadium Park. It will offer a new stadium on the
river Maas for Feyenoord, the best-known soccer club of
Rotterdam, as well as house a host of other sports
Rotterdam has many attractions to offer, ranging from
shopping and sports to culinary delights from global
cuisines. Blijdorp Zoo is one of Europe’s finest and those
who want to have a bird’s-eye view of Rotterdam can peek out
from the 185-metre high Euromast.
The city of Rotterdam hopes to welcome you as one of these
visitors, so you can see for yourself that this city isn’t
only about sports. Rotterdam is brimming with lots of other
activities. The city is vibrant and exciting!
