Rotterdam is only a half-hour from The Hague and an hour from Amsterdam, but it is centuries away from them in both appearance and personality. Here, instead of the usual Dutch web of little streets, alleyways, and winding canals, there's a spacious and elegant shopping mall and the biggest and busiest ocean harbour in the world.

Combined with excellent public transport, Rotterdam is easily covered on foot, with all sights accessible to tourists of varying abilities. After sampling the delights of the city, including the Euromast, the multitude of excellent museums and the harbours, head for the Botanical Garden in the centre of town for a taste of Rotterdam's quieter side.

Holland has a lot to offer, and tourists coming to Rotterdam should take some time to visit other major attractions which are within a short drive of the city. Amsterdam is a cool, laid-back city with outstanding architecture and top class museums featuring works from the likes of Rembrandt and Vermeer; while The Hague is noted for its fine mansions and tree-lined avenues.

Rotterdam is situated on the Nieuwe Maas River close to the North Sea, and it is the world's largest port due to its convenient location and extremely deep harbours. The city is halved by the river, and the southern half encapsulates the island of IJsselmonde. Rotterdam and the rest of the country are protected from flooding by stormy seas with huge doors farther down the river.

Rotterdam has grown from a fishing village in the late 14th century to a thriving port city today. Most of the centre of Rotterdam was destroyed in the war, and, as a result, the town layout and typical architecture are very different from the average Dutch city.

The superb road network and forever flat terrain makes for simple driving conditions, but beware of rush hours in the major cities. Regular high-speed rail connections from Brussels, Paris and Berlin, including links to the UK via the Channel Tunnel make rail travel attractive.

Rotterdam's airport receives regular European traffic and is close to the city, with a convenient bus service. Alternatively, Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam is a short train ride away. There are frequent ferry connections with the UK's Harwich and Hull ports to the Hook of Holland (Hoek van Holland).
