For several years in a row, the marathon in Rotterdam is the largest running event in the country, with more than 20,000 runners and over 900,000 spectators.

To Rotterdam you do not travel if you are looking for the typical Holland and his typical way of life (the bikes, flowers, canals of Amsterdam), but once you’ve become used to the initially cool appearance of the city, Rotterdam reveals its modern beauty as a Capital of contemporary art.

Day 1: Flight from your departure airport to Rotterdam. Transfer of your choice to your hotel. Free time at the end of the afternoon. Overnight stay.

Day 2: After breakfast sightseeing of the city. You start with the residential area of Kiefhoek and the famous Van Nelle factory Brinkman & Van der Vlugt. On the way you will see the Erasmus Bridge and the Cube Houses of Piet Blom near the harbor. You walk through the large market Binnenrotte, where you can buy a piece of cheese as a souvenir. In the afternoon visit of the Museum of World Cultures (Werelmuseum) or the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, famous for its collections of traditional and modern art. Rest of the day free time. Overnight stay.

Day 3: Breakfast at the hotel. Marathon. Overnight stay.
