Rotterdamse Schouwburg is located in the city centre and is definitely worth while visiting while in Rotterdam. The performances are modern, particularly dance. The performers are international, introductions etc. are often given in English. Check their internet site for program and on-line booking.

Rotterdam as the World City doesn’t have too many cinemas. Pathe Schouwburg and Kuip are the biggest. If making choice for this place, it has to be taken into consideration that is has some advantages compared to Kuip. It is in the City Centre, which provides good possibility for after shopping hours relaxation. Also, in case of going first to... More

We have visited this restaurant Floor with good friends. They are also real gourmets. We have ordered with 4 people all the different items of tapas. Whow, delicious, great taste, well presented. This food combined with excellent wines, good service and reasonable pricing, was a real party.

The media wall is huge and showcased videos and pictures of every day people enjoying the festival. The staff greeted everyone at the door and as a performer, all of my needs were met. Drinks and...

Schouwburg is considered one of the main points of reference in Rotterdam. It is mainly known for the cultural exhibitions which take place or just for a big open to chill out. In the schouwburg you can find the biggest cinema complex of the city "Pathe" there you can enjoy a wide range of new films.

The venue is centrally located in Rotterdam, a short walk from the station, and offers great plays, good visibility on the stages, and multiple refreshment opportunities. If you buy a ticket, you get a free drink at the bar or in the cafe. The only downside is that for people taller than 180cm/ 5'10, you have to sit with severely... More
