As the main transport nexus for one of the Netherlands' most important urban areas, Rotterdam Centraal Station offers a wealth of options for travel both within the city and throughout the country. Finished in 2014, the station building handles more than 110,000 passengers per day and boasts modern architecture topped with an angular protruding roof above the entryway. You can hop aboard a train for easy connections to other major Dutch cities such as Utrecht, The Hague, Amsterdam, and Groningen, or find service to many towns in between. The station also serves as a major hub for bus, tram, and metro transportation lines within Rotterdam. If you're headed farther afield, grab a train bound for Paris or Brussels, served by high-speed rail lines. Check the station's website for information on departure times, fares, and train schedules.

  • It is located just minutes from the city center. There are plenty of shops, food options, coffee shops, and convenience stores. Very well organized.

  • Really big and modern station. The design is really particular, thought in order to impress the travellers. Many shops inside for eating and burying staff. Really liked it

  • Despite the eye-catching design, Rotterdam station is not functional. It is a freezing cold wind-catcher, all the toilets require payment (except the Eurostar toilets once one passes security - though the others do accept card), the shops are badly laid out so as to hide some from general view, and it is much too wide side to side!
  • Perfect.
