Visiting Rotterdam is definitely worth of your time and money. What came to my attention is that this is only city in Netherland where you can get shower after a long trip. Heard about this place City Shower went there and just for €3 for 10 minutes freshen up and went further to discover this amazing city! Besides that I liked the food a lot ( so many choices between Suriname and Chinese restaurants). Definitely worth of visiting ❤️💯🙏

Such a busy station with numerous shops and cafes interesting building and architecture to view . The trams are caught from outside the station and the same as the buses. We caught the train directly from Amsterdam central it took us about 50 minutes

One thing we did comment on was how clean the station was. As this was our first visit to Rotterdam and not having organised a private transfer, we had to get the train from Schiphol Airport to Rotterdam. Staff were very easy to approach and assisted us in using the ticket machines.

First of all, I do not consider this a tourist destination, but rather a well-functioning transport hub.

The hall of this station is certainly impressive, but at the same time I have the idea that the originally devised lighting plan does not work well at all: the holes in the roof are supposed to let sunlight through, but in reality the entire hall is often shrouded in twilight.

The number of options for dinner is very limited for such a large station as this one. Sandwiches, coffee and pasta to go, ok, it's there. But somewhere to sit a bit longer than a couple of minutes for an evening meal? Unfortunately not. The fact that it is always very drafty in the corridor underneath the tracks is not very inviting or welcoming either...

Tommy experience with many train stations in Europe is that they are pretty efficient and easy to use. Centraal Station was no exception. However, it is newer and cleaner than any station I have been in before which made the experience much better.

The building is impressive but inside it’s cold, there aren’t enough seats, and there a only 2 shops selling food and drink.

One is excellent but you can only use plastic to pay, and the other is in the main hall but only accessible via a door beyond the entry barrier.

Which meant no food or drink for us!

Style over substance.

Modern and clean transport hub that is a gateway to this amazing city. While it may be considered a “second city” to Amsterdam, Rotterdam is just as fun IMO. The vibe is terrific. It’s really easy to hook into the great public transport system from the station. The Feyenoord shop is really cool. Follow me on instagram @gallivanting_gaurav

Went through here en route to Amsterdam and found it to be good for food shops and help with travel! The staff were really helpful. Nice and clean environment too. Easy to get to platforms with clear signage.

one of the few architectural wonders in Rotterdam. The Central Station is a showcase of the city often placed in souvenirs. It makes a great impression both inside and outside.
