Amazing Rotterdam

If you’re looking for that idyllic version of a Dutch town — quaint canals, picturesque bridges, gabled Renaissance rowhouses — that isn’t Rotterdam. Virtually wiped out by bombing in World War II, this rough-around-the-edges port city has been reinventing itself ever since; today Rotterdam is chock-full of eye-popping contemporary architecture and groovy urban renewal projects. Hop a bike — like anywhere in Holland, cycling is the best way to get around — and check out this ever-evolving metropolis.
