Having been largely destroyed in the Second World War, Rotterdam now features some of the most fascinating architecture in Europe. With an ever changing skyline, a commitment to innovation runs right through the city. The Architectural Institute is happy to arrange classes for visiting students and there is a great deal of art to be seen. But as well as being a home to cutting edge design and contemporary art, Rotterdam is proud of its history and has one of the oldest museums in the Netherlands.
The city also has a rich maritime history, with the port of Rotterdam stretching for about 20 miles from the centre of the city to the North Sea at the Hook of Holland. This huge infrastructure project is an ideal learning resource for geography and economics students. Tours of the harbour are available by boat and more specific aspects can be visited by request, so get in touch to find out more.
Rotterdam offers so much variety for your students depending on the purpose and interest of your visit.
On average tours are from 3 to 5 days, which means two to four hotel nights.
To help you plan your tour we can offer the following suggestion:
Travel to Rotterdam and familiarise yourself with the city layout.
Explore the harbour on one of the boat tours. Visit the Euromast for superb views of the city.
Using Rotterdam as a base, spend a full day in The Hague and a visit to the International Court of
Justice and Criminal Court.
Travel home with a stop in Brugge en-route.
