Rotterdam is the Maritime Capital of Europe and home of Europe’s biggest port. A fun city with a dynamic vibe in the heart of the vibrant maritime ecosystem of the North Sea Area, which belongs to the world’s leading maritime and offshore hotspots. The place-to-be for freight forwarders, ship owners, traders, investors and maritime businesses that want to grow, innovate and above all lead the way in digitalisation and the energy transition. With its unique and innovative 'can do’ attitude and entrepreneurial spirit, the boundaries of what is possible and known are limitless.
Blessed with striking, futuristic architecture, good public transport connections, plenty of fine restaurants and bars and a dynamic night-time economy, Rotterdam is rightly considered to be one of Europe’s most exhilarating and vibrant cities right now. The Netherlands' second-largest metropolis is a diverse community, with almost 48% of its inhabitants non-Dutch. It has an international reputation as a centre for arts and culture, as well as for maritime affairs, and there are a host of top-class museums to visit.
