This is fabulous architecture, the main front building like no other train station I’ve seen. There is still significant development happening in the area with this unique building opening in early 2013. It is a central transportation hub, with European train connections plus catering for the metro. The metro line E actually goes to The Hague, taking less than 30 minutes.
The (temporary) tourist office within is innovative, being in the form of a reclining human head. But it is effective dispensing plenty visitor information.
Directly in front of the station numerous attractive high-rise are at various stages of completion. All contributing to the well deserved reputation of Rotterdam as an architectural avant-garde.
