Rotterdam, completely flattened by German bombs during the Second World War Blitz, has risen from its ashes handsomely, stronger and more vibrant than ever. It is a young city with cutting edge architecture, lively cultural life, its universities, Erasmus University among them. The international vibes of it being one of the largest ports in the world and the gateway to... More

I was in De Doelen for the Rotterdam Film Festival. Spacious halls, excellent sound quality and beautiful designs. It's in the walking distance of the Central Station and some shopping areas in Rotterdam.

I was in De Doelen for a medical congress. The place is modern, spacious with a statue of a naked old man at the entrance...Too many rooms, congress halls and meeting places, which made it hard for almost everyone to find the right place. At first I felt like an idiot, but after talking with some local Dutch people who... More

(note: Cafe not listed under TA restaurants): Great value, very well prepared food, good fresh menu and beer selections. Top two dining experiences this trip to south Holland. House made ravioli were just the ticket.

I'm privileged to come here about once a month to listen to the Rotterdam philharmonic orchestra. It's an absolute piece of work, how the architects have upgraded the acoustics a few years ago. The building itself is like Rotterdam: straight forward, no nonsense.

It was my first time visiting De Doelen. It was during songbird festival, a 2 day festival with singer-songwriters. In different rooms/halls were artists performing. The acoustics were great, especially in the big hall. It was a bit chilly and windy inside. Staff was kind and helpful. And it is only 10 minutes walk from central station and located in... More

I have been to this concert room many many times. Each year I have a couple of series: baroque, vocal, rotterdam philharmonic orchestra etc. The quality is very good. The rotterdam philharmonic orchestra is one of the best orchestras in the world. The conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin is always a pleasure to listen to. The last conductor Gergiev is in my... More

God, how I love this place. I do not comehere often enough, but the (mostly classical) music is magnificent (also due to the fact that the acoustics are amazing). Check out the different prices, because sometimes you can get tickets for 5 euro p.p.!
