Some four million visitors find their way to the wide variety of top attractions in Rotterdam each year. The city offers something for everyone: those who love the hectic bustle of the city or those who like to see the beautiful skyline from different point of views or those who want to visit several museums and architectural highlights, but also for people who are searching for the peace and beauty of nature.
Rotterdam attracts a lot of international interest as a city of architecture. A city centre with several square kilometres offers a complete overview of what the twentieth century has produced in terms of modern architecture. Appealing examples of pre-war architecture include the Van Nelle Factory and the Sonneveld House. The innovative and adventurous period after the war is expressed in structures such as the Erasmus Bridge and the Luxor Theatre. The city also has a broad selection of museums, featuring everything from modern art to historical treasures, from architecture to photography, from historical ships to exotic animals, just about everything you could imagine displayed in a museum in the city.
