Harbour Cruise

There is no better way than to explore Rotterdam by boat. Board one of the accessible modern ships to sail through the city and the  harbour of Rotterdam. You will pass by the famous Erasmus Bridge, which is also called 'the Swan'  and you will see Rotterdam's impressive skyline. You then get a unique view of the harbours shipyards, docks and the hypermodern transshipping of thousands of containers. Last but not least the tour will end with a view of the steamship 'Rotterdam', the former cruise flagship of shipping company Holland America Line. An exciting 75 minutes with clear descriptions of everything you see.

Kinderdijk windmills

If you want to expand your visit to Rotterdam, add a visit to the windmills of Kinderdijk. From the Erasmus Bridge you can take a Waterbus to Kinderdijk which will take approximately 20 - 30 minutes. At Kinderdijk, you can watch a movie on large screen that explains about the water management and history of the iconic area. After the movie, hop on one of the wheelchair accessible boats to sail past the beautiful windmills all lined up along the dikes. The windmill called 'Wipmolen' is accessible, but it's helpfull to anounce your visit in advance so they can put down a ramp at the entrance of the windmill. The path towards the windmill is flat, but made of tiny stones.
