Free Walking Tour Rotterdam

Discover Rotterdam with a local friend from Free Walking Tour Rotterdam!

Free Rotterdam Walking Tour

Rotterdam is an excellent city for a Free Walking Tour, because of its great architecture and its many different stories.

The city was bombed heavily in the Second World War but was built up quickly during and after its fall. Pre-war buildings are now replaced with stunning modern architecture and a new Rotterdam has arisen from the ashes. 

This makes Rotterdam great for a walk with a local friend, getting up close under its skyline and showing you the city landmarks. 

Yet, there is more to Europe’s architectural capital than a number of flashy skyscrapers… Who was Erasmus of Rotterdam and why did the philosopher become so famous for the student exchange program?

How does a relatively unassuming city boast the former biggest harbor in the world? Still serving as the gateway to Europe, it is the continent’s biggest industrial area.

Although it would be impossible to see the whole area in two hours, we will tell you the stories that will sail you across its grandness. Part of the tour is spent in the Museum Harbour, giving you a feel of the size.

Join us, for an entertaining tour with lots of humor and inspiring stories. Book a spot before you go, to keep the tours personal and high quality we accept up to 15 people per guide. As it is an outside activity, it is Corona-proof. 

See you soon!

Jakob B
Me and my girlfriend had a great tour with Wim today. Perfect length of the tour and really nice background information about the main sights of the city mixed with some interesting historical information. Can definitely recommend:)!
Daniela R
It was so interesting to learn as much as we can about Rotterdams history and features during our one day trip here. Bram was such a nice and friendly guide and my mum and I really enjoyed listening to his explanations. We highly recommend the tour!
Doro G
Charming way to get to know the city by peope who grew up here and/or who live here. Recommendable for those who are only in the city for a short stay as well as for those who enjoy the city a bit longer. Our tour guide Bram did a very good job!

Frequently asked questions about the tour

Where does the tour start?

Free Walking Tour Rotterdam starts at Blaak station. This is not the Central Station, but the one at the Market Hall. We start at the front of the Market Hall, opposite from the famous yellow cube houses.

What do we see on the tour?

In the tour we cover a lot of the city centre, for example the Museum Harbour, Zadkine statue and the World War II story. We greet Midget Buttplug (no joke) and some great architecture! The walk is almost 5 km/ approx. 2 miles. The tour is interactive, so there is a great feeling of involvement. The guides also provide you with information and insider tips about where to spend your time after the tour.

Do you have to make a reservation?

Yes, please make a reservation, because of current guidelines and our quality policy we accept a maximum of 15 people per guide. You can book via our website (check the link above). If you forgot to make a booking or the tour is full online, you can try your luck at the meeting point in the Market Hall. Sometimes people do not show up and a spot becomes available.

Can you leave before the end of the tour?

Yes! No worries, it's a free tour. Free to join and free to leave whenever you like. Please let the guide know that you leave, so he won’t be looking for you.

What does the tour cost? Is it really free?

It is whatever you think the Free Walking Tour in Rotterdam is worth, also what you can miss. In this way everyone is able to join. We do not receive support from the city or the government, so we are always grateful for whatever you give.
