More information about the City of Rotterdam:

Rotterdam AKA ‘The Gateway to Europe’ is a vibrant port city which offers something for everyone.

There are lots of bars, restaurants, cafes and coffee shops, high street and designer shopping, sightseeing excursions and top-level sport to name but a few.

The Tourist Information centre is excellent with helpful staff and lots of information of what to see and do whilst in the city.

The list of things to do in Rotterdam is endless but cycle tours and riverboat cruises are always popular. Spido Tour of 75 minutes.

If you don’t suffer from vertigo then the Euromast 360 tower offers panoramic views of the city from 100 metres up and go Laser gaming nearby.

There is an excellent zoo and the modern development housing dozens of bars and restaurants.

Rotterdam is probably best known for its sea-port which is currently the largest in Europe – because of the port the city is a very important logistical hub and as a result the city is very cosmopolitan.

The city has some stunning architectural buildings with some structures being major tourist attractions such as Centraal Station or Kijk-Kubus which are a bizarre collection of slanted houses which look almost impossible to stay at

The Kijk-Kubus Hostel you also can sleep their during this tournament.

The most important thing for us is that Rotterdam is also known as the Sportstad (The City of Sport).

Every year there are world renowned sporting events such as the Rotterdam Marathon and the Red Bull Air Race – it is also home to three professional football teams: Feyenoord Rotterdam, Sparta Rotterdam and Excelsior Rotterdam and 2 Tournaments Dutch Soccer Youth Cup and Dutch Autumn Cup en Dutch Summer Cup.
