Rotterdam may be the Netherlands’ “second city”, but it’s first in a lot of ways. It’s Europe’s biggest port, has enough modern skyscrapers to earn it the nickname “'Manhattan on the Meuse” and attracts artists from all over the world.
Ready to explore? You don’t need to “fry the whole herring for the sake of the roe” (do too much to achieve only a little). Wotif makes it easy to rent a car in Rotterdam—where you take it is up to you.
Rotterdam car rentals are a great way to experience the city’s bridges and tunnels. First up, the most famous: Erasmusbrug. This modern beaut manages to be both graceful and powerful, earning it the nickname “the Swan”.
Next, race through the Maastunnel and you’ll emerge on the other side with a great view of the Euromast, Rotterdam’s most iconic tower. The restaurant and observation tower offer awesome 360-degree views, and after lunch, you can zip-line or abseil back to your hire car.
Yes, you can jump off this building with nothing but a cable attached to your waist. Now that’s something to write home about.
At just four times the size of metro Sydney, all of the Netherlands is at your fingertips when you book car hire in Rotterdam. But let’s be “Frank”: Attractions like the Anne Frank House and Van Gogh Museum are at the top of your list, so check out our Amsterdam hotels and head 90km north to the capital!
Know what’s even easier than motoring around the Netherlands in your own personal chariot? Booking it right here on Wotif, then adding on your airfare and accommodation with our Rotterdam holiday packages.
Stick with us, and you’ll never say “the herring does not fry here” about your getaway. That means “it's not going according to plan”, and yes, there are a lot of Dutch proverbs involving herrings.
