Events in Rotterdam

Rotterdam is the host of many famed events, such as International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), Rotterdam Marathon, North Sea Jazz Festival and Wereldhavendagen.

Restaurants

Rotterdam is a true cultural melting pot and thus home to many different restaurants, bars, coffee bars, lunchrooms and take-away spots! Either if you are vegetarian, vegan, fish-lover or a carnivore, there is something for everyone.  

On Katendrecht you’ll find many little restaurants at Deliplein, whereas in the Witte de Withstraat you’ll be amongst the hipsters. More into fries? Try out Tante Nel, Pomms or Bram Ladage for a true deep fried experience.

Musea & culture

Rotterdam is home to many different types of museums and art galleries. As Lonely Platet states: "From cutting edge contemporary galleries to one of the oldest museums in the Netherlands, Rotterdam has a diverse collection of art and it’s not just confined to museums – you´ll find outdoor sculptures, installations and street art spread throughout the city." Does this quote need any addition? Don’t think so! Get outside and visit Rotterdam’s culture!

Events on Campus

Even though the campus is (partially) closed, there are still more than enough events from associations, departments and faculties for you to join! Through the Uni-Life App, you can find all of these events that are hosted by Erasmus organisations and associations, no matter whether they are online or offline.
