Rotterdam is a dynamic place that is perfect for a city trip. Home to Europe's largest port, it's well worth hopping on a boat to admire the city from the water. Check out extraordinary architecture, such as the Cube Houses and the Erasmus Bridge. Several interesting museums can be found around the Museumpark, including the Kunsthal, Boijmans Van Beuningen and the Netherlands Architecture Institute. What's more, the hotel is a short walk from Diergaarde Blijdorp Zoo and the Oceanium sea aquarium.Food and Drink
