Rotterdam is the second largest Dutch city and not only the major port in The Netherlands but by far the biggest port in Europe. It is located in the west of the country, close to the North Sea.

Rotterdam Walking Tours
Rotterdam Architectural Tours can focus on traditional buildings, contemporary buildings or both. We can provide information to build up a good programme, for example if your group is interested in Dutch office buildings we can assist with advising where the key projects are ahead of their visit to Holland.
