Driving in and around Rotterdam

It’s relatively easy to navigate around Rotterdam, with a beltway formed of the A4, A20, A16 and A15 circling the center. The city itself is divided in two by the Nieuwe Maas canal, which runs from west to east through the center. There are several road bridges that cross this stretch of water, including the A4 and A16.

The vast majority of international visitors will arrive at Rotterdam The Hague Airport, located less than five miles outside the city center. Take the A13 south and you will soon find yourself in Rotterdam's central areas in under 15 minutes. Just like any big city, you’ll likely experience heavier traffic in Rotterdam during peak hours so it’s best to plan your journey in advance.

Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, one of the city’s top art galleries, can be found along Museumpark, with a parking lot just next door. Kralingse Bos and Plas, a serene park space, is a 10-minute drive from the heart of Rotterdam. There are many parking lots peppered around the city making it easy for you to leave your vehicle and roam around on foot.  

If you want to make the most of your time in the Netherlands and embark on a few day trips, you’ll find that Rotterdam is surrounded by Autosnelweg, the country’s version of a freeway.

To reach The Hague, a cultured city on the Netherland's west coast, it’s just a 30-minute drive north along the A13 from Rotterdam. If you want to visit the nation's famous capital Amsterdam, take the A4 route to the capital, which is just over an hour away.

Typically for mainland Europe, you’ll drive on the right-hand side of the road and overtake on the left. The country has some of the heftiest fines for speeding on the so make sure you keep an eye out for signs which are marked in kilometers per hour.

In urban areas, the maximum is usually 30mph (50 km/h) which rises to 62mph (100km/h) on Autoweg (main national roads) and 80mph (130 km/h) on freeways.

A quick guide to Rotterdam

Punctuated by glass and steel skyscrapers, the skyline of Rotterdam is a vision of the future. Its destiny took a turn in 1940 and the city hasn’t looked back since. Today it’s a dynamic, pioneering place, embracing the new with a light-hearted attitude.

Architectural wonders

A great way to get your bearings at the start of your trip to Rotterdam is by visiting the city’s Euromast Tower, the tallest building in the country. Take the elevator up to the main viewing platform, where you can enjoy stunning vistas of Rotterdam. A rotating, glass elevator will then transport you to the very top of the tower, where it’s possible to see all the way out to the North Sea.

More of Rotterdam’s architecture can be uncovered at the Het Nieuwe Instituut, an architecture and design museum where you can see Huis Sonneveld. This villa was first built in 1933 and is considered a prime example of the Dutch functionalism architectural style. Today, it’s been restored so you can admire it in all its former glory.

Slightly more unusual are the city's Cube Houses, created by Dutch architect Piet Blom as part of the Overblaak Development. You'll be amazed at these houses, which rest on one corner, making them appear diamond-shaped. One of them has even been turned into a museum, so you can catch a glimpse of the custom-made furniture and quirky living conditions.

Artistic merit

One of Rotterdam's internationally-renowned attractions is the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, which boasts one of Europe's finest collections of art. Here you can admire sculptures and paintings from Dutch masters, such as Van Gogh and Rembrandt, as well as other influential European painters including Titian, Dali and Monet.

Art isn’t just found inside galleries in Rotterdam - the city is something of an open-air museum. Wander along the Westersingel Canal to see a string of sculptures from international artists including Rodin. If you head to Rotterdam Central station, you can join a walking tour that will take you past an abundance of street art from Rewriters Rotterdam, an art collective whose murals add a dash of color to the walls and doorways of the city.

Feast on local fare

If all that exploring has helped you work up an appetite, then now is a good time to visit De Markthal, a bustling food hall. The building’s arch-shaped exterior is hugely impressive, while inside you'll find an array of tempting food stalls selling everything from moreish vegetarian samosas to cones of tasty fries.

Fenix Food Factory is another must-visit market in Rotterdam. Make your way to this former warehouse to discover a flourishing food hub, which focuses on selling local produce. Artisanal cheeses, freshly baked bread and delicious stroopwafels are among the line-up.

Renting a car in Rotterdam allows you to visit all these attractions and more, as well as getting out to explore beyond the city.
