Hop-on Hop-off Rotterdam Highlights Tour
Hop aboard a double-decker bus and enjoy the many sights of Rotterdam, the "Gateway to Europe." Feel free to hop on and hop off at any of the seven stops along the Rotterdam bus tour to see as many sights as you want. The sightseeing tour takes you past all the highlights of Rotterdam, including Market Hal, Euromast, Erasmus Bridge, Museum Park, Kop van Zuid, the Kubuswoningen, the Oude Haven, and the Coolsingel.
Market Hall is a unique horseshoe-shaped building. It includes office space, residential, and shopping space -- it's an architectural wonder. At the Euromast observation tower, pull out your camera and snap photos of the breahtaking view. Looking for a thrill? You can also rappel down the tower! The Erasmus Bridge is a unique bridge, featuring an asymmetrical white pylon, earning it the nickname "The Swan." More of a culturual buff? Museum Park has several museums, including art museums and a natural history museum. If you are interested in nautical history, Kop van Zuid is where the Holland America Line started in the 19th century. The Kubuswoningen is a group of 39 cube-shaped houses elevated on pylons and resting at 45 degrees; these unique residential units were built in 1977 and are meant to represent a forest. Just beyond the modern cube houses, the Oude Haven offers a glimpse into how Rotterdam looked in the old days. And the Coolsingel is one of the best known streets in Rotterdam and features City Hall and some of the best shopping and most trendy clubs in Rotterdam.

Getting the Bus was very easy. We took it all around and then stopped where wanted to go.
