Netherlands, Rotterdam Guide (B): 24 Hours in Rotterdam: Restaurants, Bars and Markets

Like many Amsterdammers, I rarely leave the capital except to go to the airport. But two years ago I promised my other half that I’d take him to Rotterdam and we’d eat and drink our way around the Netherlands’ second city. At the time, we’d just moved house and he was traveling every other week for work, so it got postponed. But finally last weekend, I made good on my promise and we spent a day doing an impromptu food tour of Rotterdam’s restaurants, bars and markets. Rotterdam is not a large city, but it is a little spread out.

The ubiquitous blue and yellow bikes are available from all the main train stations (and other handy locations), checking out a bike takes literally 30 seconds, and a day’s bike hire is a ridiculously cheap €3.35 (per 24 hours).
