Picture card of rotterdam

Centraal station for me is the picture of Rotterdam. This gorgeous looking station is near to city centre and it looks very pleasing from front.

You can stop there by Tram, Metro, Bus or Train. It has also direct access to taxis. Except for the trains and some buses (BOB-Bus) tram and metro only work until 12:30am. So after that time, you have to reach your destination by taxi or walking. It has a nice bicycle parking.

Its a good place to see and visit, and being in Rotterdam you will see this place anyway probably. There is nothing special in this building, apart from the strange shape. Insides are clean and you need a ov-card to get pass the gates (otherwise you cannot go inside to see the shops etc). You can buy tickets in the... More

Absolutely stunning place. Architecturally it looks fabulous. The signage is easy to navigate, and there are friendly helpful English speaking people to help if you are unsure.

Extremely modern,easy to follow, and the ticket officers are helpful.If you're staying for quite awhile,go get a plastic chip card from the Service area,to make the tram/rail/bus so much cheaper. Also travelling to Amsterdam on the sprinter,you must get a second strike on your card.Once when entering the Station and once at the platform.If you don't you get 10 euro... More

I was passing through this station on my way to Amsterdam the ticket office was a bit tricky to understand if you don't speak Dutch but once you understand the process it's very easy but once on the platform you must be careful with the trains as some of them you can use and some you can't

We arrived at 8am from the Hook of Holland and found it really easy to find everything we needed. The information booth was well located and easy to find. We got train times including platforms and bought travel cards from the tourist information window. These were good value for us as we used various trams and Metro plus visited 4... More
