Overlooking the North Sea at the mouth of the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta, Rotterdam is the second-largest city in the Netherlands, playing home to an estimated population of 655,468 residents from over 180 different nationalities. Europe's largest seaport, it commands a lofty reputation as a significant logistical and economic nexus, rightfully earning its monikers as the "Gateway to Europe" and "Gateway to the World".

The fabric of Rotterdam unravels a long history which can be traced back to at least the year 950, with the diminutive settlement at the lower end of the Rotte river. From obtaining city rights in 1340, growing as a trans-shipment hub, and experiencing extensive modernisation post-World War II, Rotterdam's journey bleeds into its urban landscape - a kaleidoscope of architectural marvels by the likes of Rem Koolhaas and Piet Blom.

Rotterdam's ethos celebrates diversity, evident in its multicultural populace, significant non-industrialised foreign population, and sect of businesses helmed by foreign-born individuals. With Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism as the main religious denominations, and a considerable chunk of the population professing no religious affiliation, the city proves to be a melting pot of a broad range of traditions and beliefs.

When to visit Rotterdam

Guessing games in the form of weather forecasts don't quite belong to the Rotterdam vacation package. The temperate oceanic climate graces this city with cool winters and mild to warm summers.
