Peak Season:

The festival can be enjoyed by travellers on a budget as it is free to enter.

Off-peak Season:

The Festival has been entertaining an audience of over 285,000 for 44 spectacular years and is one of the largest public film events in the world. The Film Festival is spread out over 12 days and features hundreds of film makers and artists, who showcase a high class line-up of documentary feature films, short films and media art.

City overview

Before World War II, Rotterdam existed as a rather dreary industrial town, but when bombs dropped in the 1940s the city’s physical history was changed forever. What is left of the city now only developed within the last 70 years. The entire city, along with its two-dimensional reputation, disappeared and new, modern architecture sprung up in every corner of the city, from apartment buildings to courthouses, to business parks, museums, restaurants, and even tourist areas. Sleek, straight lines, bold colours, and inventive new angles became the new face of the city.

Book a flight to Rotterdam and see the new and improved metropolis. Gone are the winding little Dutch streets, quaint villages, and small-town structures. Now, efficiency and modernity have replaced the city with a clean slate, a new personality, and a fresh new outlook.
