Port of Rotterdam

The Port of Rotterdam is definitely one of the tourist highlights of Rotterdam.
With an annual production of 450 million tons, Rotterdam is by far the largest port in Europe and number four worldwide after three asian ports.
The best way to discover the harbour is with a two-hour harbour cruise from Spido cruise company, passing the container transfer quays and gigantic oil tankers.
Expansion was created in the North Sea with the Maasvlakte. Because of this, it is more than a thirty miles distance from the heart of the city to the North Sea.
More than 90,000 people work in the port every day.

During our Gouda and the Hague tour we will pass by the Port of Rotterdam and get an impression of its size. Or do a harbour cruise.
