As the main transport nexus for one of the Netherlands' most important urban areas, Rotterdam Centraal Station offers a wealth of options for travel both within the city and throughout the country. Finished in 2014, the station building handles more than 110,000 passengers per day and boasts modern architecture topped with an angular protruding roof above the entryway. You can hop aboard a train for easy connections to other major Dutch cities such as Utrecht, The Hague, Amsterdam, and Groningen, or find service to many towns in between. The station also serves as a major hub for bus, tram, and metro transportation lines within Rotterdam. If you're headed farther afield, grab a train bound for Paris or Brussels, served by high-speed rail lines. Check the station's website for information on departure times, fares, and train schedules.

  • Well designed modern railway station with access to metros as well. The design and structure is very unique. There are various food stores and supermarket outlets inside the station. Just outside the railway station you have the tram station as well. Easy access to the city from here.
  • I gave it three starts as I couldn't find toilets here, and that's very annoying. Also, it's not a child-friendly station as there are not spaces for children here. The biggest train station in Rotterdam. It has 16 platforms that can connect you to different cities and countries as well. There are international trains going through this station, and a number of these trains stops here too. There many facilities here to shop and eat and to buy gifts.
