Dive into de Rotte. Join a boat ride and meet Desiderius Erasmus on one of the floating picnic islands. Relax on the waterside listening to one of Rotterdam’s upcoming musicians. Yes! The first ever Rotterdam Water Weekend is coming up.
Because Rotterdam has such a rich water history, two festivals decided to put their heads together. In a joint initiative, Wijnhaven Festival and Rotte Picnic Islands came up with the Rotterdam Water Weekend, to be held from 30 June till 2 July.
Lots to do
You can rent a boat or go on a guided tour to learn about the history and future of the abundant waterways of the city. Looking for a bit more action? Join the 010 City Swim or the Rotta-Run. And if you’re not the sporty type, just sit back and relax on the docks or one of the picnic islands, cheer on the swimmers, and enjoy a maritime concert by Sinfonia Rotterdam.
