One day in Rotterdam: What to do with limited time

Rotterdam, the Netherlands’ second-largest city, and Europe’s biggest port. The city is known for its modern architecture which you can find throughout. It is also home to many festivals, offers a great nightlife, and has a lot of shops which are open 7 days a week!  The city, in the past, was often skipped by tourists, only visiting Amsterdam and maybe Kinderdijk. It is now the fastest-growing touristic city of Holland. And not without reason. Rotterdam is located only an hour’s drive from the main capital and is therefore perfect to visit for one day!  Enjoying this unique city with its crazy history is a must when visiting the Netherlands and in this post, I will show you what to see and do when you are only for one day in Rotterdam!
