Rotterdam History Tour

Many will associate Rotterdam like a modern and new city. Actually Rotterdam is an old city with a rich and tolerant history in the spirit of Erasmus. In this history tour you will learn how Rotterdam transformed from a traditional Dutch city into a modern metropolis with a giant port, once the biggest in the world. 

Learn with this fascinating history tour about prominent historical Rotterdam figures, like the humanist Erasmus, Van Oldenbarnevelt (Netherlands’ most prominent Dutch statesman) and Hugo de Groot (founder of the international law), all great examples of the Rotterdam religious tolerance that goes back before the reformation. Our guide will lead you through the Dutch Golden Age in Rotterdam, the rising of the famous Port of Rotterdam and important magnates of that period, the dramatic bombardment in World War II and the modern striking architecture of nowadays.
