Rotterdam is a wonderful city to explore. Between flights, accommodation and food, we can understand that some trips come at a cost. Below are some ideas on how you can spend your time wisely in Rotterdam, without spending a penny.
Trompenburg Tuinen & Arboretum is a beautiful botanical garden with a large collection of trees, shrubs, perennials, bulbs and tubers. The garden is located on the edge of the centre of Rotterdam in the Kralingen district, where you can escape the hectic city and enjoy some peace and tranquillity here on the 8 hectares. For green lovers, you can find anything and everything here from finding traditional gardens in an English style, but also a modern food forest in development and a photogenic desert greenhouse. Trompenburg is of great value in the field of biodiversity and natural history. We have been a registered museum for several years.
Rotterdam is surrounded by water, so the most obvious way to spend a sunny summer day is by taking a boat trip! Choose from a slow cruise along the canals or you can take the thrill-seekers Spido boat, which takes you all around Rotterdam’s port, complete with outside seats and a bar which serves food and drinks.
When visiting Rotterdam you must take a visit to one of the highest towers in Holland, the Euromast. Here you will get to see the city from a unique perspective, just high enough to see and absorb the city’s true beauty. Take the Euroscoop to the top. For the thrill seeker of the trip, don’t go down with the elevator, you can do so with a rope! From the Euromast you can experience the highest abseil in Europe.
Rotterdam Zoo is one of the oldest zoos in the Netherlands and it has brought joy to millions since it opened in1857. Enjoy an afternoon strolling around this beautiful space, visiting hundreds of species of animals from across the globe. Visit Elephants, lions, penguins, giraffes, reptiles and monkeys of all shapes and sizes here. Keep an eye out for newborn animals, born in the zoo via their excellent breeding programme. There are plenty of family-friendly activities and facilities in the zoo including kid’s workshops, playgrounds and numerous restaurants.
The Het Park is better known as the park at the Euromast –one of the oldest parks in Rotterdam. The trees are more than a hundred years old, walk along the golden leaves and be sure to keep an ear out for some bustling wildlife, tawny owl breeds can be found in the followers as well as woodpeckers and freshwater muscles in the water ponds. If you are lucky enough to come here on your walk, the park often turns into a lively spot with events and food markets for you to enjoy.
