1. Re: daytrips from rotterdam using tram or metro

Does it have to be metro or tram, or can it be trains/boats too? What kind of places?

For example... windmills: Kinderdijk

Nature: Biesbosch

Cities: Dordrecht (can be reached by boat as well), Breda, Amsterdam, Leiden, Delft...

Water defense works: Deltawerken

www.9292.nl/en will help you plan all public transport from door to door.

For Rotterdam itself, look here: http://en.rotterdam.info/visitors/

Historic Delfshaven by metro lines A,B and C or tram 4. Schiedam by tram 23. Metro E takes you all the way to The Hague. Tram 7 to the Kralingse Bos, which is a nice park on the shores of a small lake.

Same tram 7 to the Willemsplein/Erasmusbridge from where you can take the Spido Harbour tour. Tram 21 and 24 or metro A,B and C to the Blaak district with its´ cubic houses, market and old harbour.

And what about Blijdorp zoo and Rotterdam Noord. That is becoming an interesting part of the city too with some nice new cafes and markets.

Great weather for the Fotomuseum, and then coffee and tompouce (sweet pastry) at Hotel New York.
