Weekend breaks to Rotterdam
Although Rotterdam is not known for tourism in the same way that Amsterdam is, it is becoming more of a tourist location for those who are interested in alternative music, modern architecture and good shopping. Located conveniently on the continent but on the coast Rotterdam makes sure that you can take a weekend break to the beach in addition to seeing Rotterdam’s city hall, the White House, the cube houses, and the New Orleans Tower. Go shopping at the Lijabaan, the Zuidplen and the Alexandria. When you have finished, go out for some world famous classical music and see the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. Or spend a night on the town listening to Gabber electronic music during your weekend trip. Weekend breaks to Rotterdam are surprisingly as fun as to Amsterdam and you won’t be surrounded by tourists all the time. Making plans for a weekend trip here is well worth the effort.
Weekend trips to Rotterdam and Finding Accommodation
If you are looking for places to stay during your weekend break to Rotterdam, you are probably considering some of the hotels, hostels and bed and breakfasts located across the city. Because Rotterdam is not economically geared toward tourists you may find yourself looking at simple and sometimes a bit disconnected accommodation. One way to feel like you are really connecting with the city is to stay with a local instead. Rather than have a bland bedroom in a series of bedrooms, you will be able to communicate with your host about things to do in Rotterdam and you will be able to learn a little bit about what it is like to live here. On Wimdu we have listings of people who are willing to take short stay travellers on weekend trips and in general we know that people who use our site find the rates cheaper than those for the duration of their weekend break spent at a hotel.
