  • Plenty of places to meet up with others and to quickly store, or visit the Burger King of course. The toilet is very far and you should be carry exact change, otherwise the pressure high.

  • In the centre of the business area and not far from what is left of the old town, a soaring sculpture that marks the main access to the city. Btw, there is a tourist office as well. 
  • Perhaps a weird model from outside but inside is Rotterdam Central super spacious. Everywhere are clear signs and in addition, you can quickly retrieve what you need. Ah to go, Etos several dining options and own a few clothing shops.
