Located in the South Holland province, Rotterdam is one of the Netherlands' most lively cities, as well as one of the largest trading ports in the world.
Explore Rotterdam's surroundings by going to The Hague (Zandmotor & Museum Meermanno) and Klimpark Het Klimeiland (in Leidschendam). And it doesn't end there: make a splash at BuytenDelft, walk around Arboretum Heempark, see the interesting displays at The Hidden House of Madame de Berry, and ponder the world of politics at Binnenhof & Ridderzaal (Inner Court & Hall of the Knights).
