Visited en route to Amsterdam, very impressive train station. More like a huge shopping mall. The trains were on time and clean with free wifi.

architecturally fascinating, very efficient, clean, well laid out, easy to buy tickets and get to the platforms. If you are buying Intercity Direct tickets to Amsterdam or Schiphol from the machine be sure to get the supplement!

The personnel there were wonderful when my wife went down on the escalator. So were the ambulance people and the staff at the Sint Franciscus Gasthuis, where they only charged us 150 Euros for putting 16 stitches in my wife's leg. In retrospect, we should have taken the elevator at the train station.

This rather beautiful station has everything that you could need when travelling - many shops and kiosks, clean toilets (though there is a standard 50c charge), and helpful staff.

You have to see this magnificent building. Trains to f.e. Bruxelles, Antwerp, Paris and all diections in the Netherlands. For travelling in the Netherlands you wiil need a "chipcard".

It took them many years to build at considerable cost and a lot of hassle for all travelers, but now we as "rotterdammerts" are soooo proud of the result. Come and have a look!

A fantastic super-modern and new central station, a magnificent building with a waiting room (the "huiskamer") in the style of the thirties with (old) leather couches, very friendly staff and good food - worth a visit!

I have followed the final adjustments of this station, and it worked very well during the process of adjustments and adaptations. There is a few markets, cafés (even a Dudok Patiserie), bookstores, flower shop, etc... Also, there is one really big indoor parking lot for bicycles, it's located in the underground. Also in the underground, there is a Ov-Fiets stall,... More
