About Rotterdam

Rotterdam is Netherland's second largest city with about 630 000 inhabitants. The city is located quite close to the Atlantic Ocean, but is not really on the coast. However, several rivers leading in and out of the city makes it feel very much like a coastal city. It is also Europe's largest port.

Rotterdam is also known for its Erasmus University, the Erasmus Bridge and for its football team, called Feyenoord, the first Dutch club to win the UEFA Cup.
