Welcome to Rotterdam
Rotterdam is a dynamic world city, internationally renowned as the 'gateway to Europe'. Our port is the hub of Europe's largest maritime cluster, but also within other strong economic sectors such as Clean Tech, Life Sciences & Health, Energy, Agro-food, Transport & Logistics and Finance, we operate at world level.
Thanks to our many internationally recognised knowledge institutions, a thriving international business community, high-quality culture and architecture, a rich leisure offering and a great diversity of residents, Rotterdam offers everything in one.
With our strategic location in Europe, we are literally connected to the rest of the world. In our compact city centre, many business and conference venues, hotels and other facilities are within walking distance of each other. Connections in Rotterdam arise organically, perhaps precisely because of these literally short distances
