As you may have noticed, or will notice as soon as you enter the city, Rotterdam is vibrant, modern and renewing it self constantly. Somewhere half way through 2014 the Rotterdam skyline welcomed ‘The Rotterdam’ (check article: Wilhelminapier) and a brand new Central Station. In December 2015 ‘The Timmerhuis’ was added to the collection and recently ‘The First’ opened its doors. Besides this, the city’s public transport has made big steps towards providing an optimal service and will open a new metro line from the centre to the beach in 2017.
I guess we can conclude that after 75 years of rebuilding the city due to the bombings in WOII it’s time to celebrate the City as it is in the year 2016. Till the 31st of July there will be activities such as stories told by locals, movies, theatre, art, dance and many more. Museums such as Boijmans Van Beuningen and a brand new museum called Museum Rotterdam will host exhibitions about the history of Rotterdam.
Many outdoor activities are organised such as cultural walks passing iconic Rotterdam buildings, light shows and on top of all that you can admire a huge Baby at Schouwburgplein. The Baby represents the new Rotterdammer, locals that make the city as it is these days. Locals the city is proud of. The list of activities won’t fit this article so please take a look on the website/Facebook page to get all the information you need!
