Rotterdam - New York at the Maas!
Walking out of the Central Station it’s immediately obvious that this is no cutesy tulips-and-clogs traditional Dutch town, as the walls of shining silver skyscrapers and brightly coloured tower blocks rise up on every side of you. After wandering around the city for a while, you will soon discover why. In stead of rebuilding its historic centre, this forward-thinking port town employed an army of mad architects to completely redesign the city after it was flattened by German bombs in May 1940. They did a great job and created a new heart for Rotterdam that is not only modern and functional, but arresting and unique. Rotterdam is our home base and most used and succesful Unblocking City. With the new 'Markthal' and all the attention in the international media of a worldwide Top 10 Inspiring destination, Rotterdam is a must see place to visit.
