Rotterdam The Essential
Recommended
The third largest port in the world (1997), the city of Rotterdam has the second largest population in the Netherlands. The Nieuwe Maas (New Maas or Meuse) river, on which the city grew up, together with the proximity of the North Sea, make it a hub for the industrial regions served by the Rhine, the Maas/Meuse and their tributaries. Rebuilt after the Second World War, it has some fine thoroughfares, which will please those who enjoy modern towns.
