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.

My wife and I, both Senior citizens, had a day out in Rotterdam. At the central station, we made enquiries at the Tourist Office and were sold Euro 4.50 tickets for Tram No.10 which conveniently stopped right in front of the station. Unfortunately, this route only runs from July until early September.

The tram criss-crosses Rotterdam passing all the major landmarks. It works on a hop-on hop-off full day ticket basis.

We stopped at Euromast (great place to go up to 185 metres by lifts) and Delfsthaven.

The new Rotterdam Centraal Station is still being renovated, but is really beginning to take shape. This modern building fits with downtown Rotterdam. All trains come here, and outside the trams or taxis are ready to take you off on your Rotterdam adventure. Station staff are very good for information.
