Built around one of the largest harbours in the world, Rotterdam has grown from a small settlement in the 10th century into a great port and centre for industry, trade, design and architecture. A very multicultural city, Rotterdam is home to many nationalities from around the world, and the unique atmosphere created is also definitely worth experiencing. With Amsterdam, just a short drive to the north and the sprawling city ready to be explored, your holiday here with a rental car will no doubt be easy and stress-free, just as a holiday should be! Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Rotterdam is both easy and economical.
Rotterdam is a city with loads of great architecture. Having been badly destroyed in WWII, much of the city was rebuilt, and in from the 1980s onwards, the city has seen a transformation with modern apartments and office blocks being built, luckily not creating an eyesore, however, but instead creating a unique metropolis. Simply exploring the city with your rental car, you will come across many innovative and creative building designs, a must for fans of architecture.
The city also has plenty of attractions dedicated to the arts, with some excellent museums to choose from. The Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, which is located in the city centre just north of the harbour is one of the main art museums in Rotterdam, and well worth a visit. With several different collections spread out through the building, an entire day can easily be spent here.
To visit another great museum in Rotterdam, head south of the harbour from here, and check out the Nederlands Fotomuseum, which houses rotating collections of great photos in many themes. To see an attraction of a completely different kind, jump in your hire car and drive to the northwest part of the city where you will find Rotterdam Zoo. Having been established over 150 years ago, the zoo is famous throughout this part of the world and definitely worth a visit.
