It might be hard to believe but the weather forecast above is real and sometimes Rotterdam gets a bit of sunshine too! What you need to do is to get most out of it!

With the end of the year approaching and the sunny days appearing in our forecast, there are lots of things you can do and I will tell you a few of your options!

Go and climb the stairs at Rotterdam Centraal!

At the end of May, they have built giant stairs climbing all the way to the rooftop of the building next to Rotterdam Centraal! You should go there and take a look at the fascinating panoramic view of Rotterdam from the top. They will be staying there until the 18th so you better hurry up if you don’t want to miss it!

Keep an eye on Food truck Festivals!

Food truck festivals are a big thing in Rotterdam. Whenever the summer starts approaching you can find a food truck festival somewhere in the city. It is really nice to sit under the sun while enjoying a selection of diverse food and drinks and to finish it with an ice cream! Of course there is always live music accompanying to the enjoyable atmosphere! Grab your friends and go to a food truck festival, you won’t be disappointed!

Go to the beach in the Hague!

If you are more of a beach lover, you can also go to the beach in the Hague to satisfy your needs! With the nice weather it will be one of the unbeatable options to enjoy the sun on a beach! There are lots of spots to get good food and drinks right on the beach as well!

Architecture Day in Rotterdam is coming up!

18th of June marks the start of the architecture days in Rotterdam! During that time you are invited to visit different architectural buildings around the city that make the Rotterdam the beautiful city it is! I personally love architecture and these days are absolutely amazing for me and for you too! It gives you an opportunity to get inside some of the buildings which you wouldn’t be able to in other days to enjoy the fully immersive taste of architecture in Rotterdam! Both with its modern and traditional architecture Rotterdam offers a lot to explore! For more information visit:
