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!
