Day in Rotterdam

Our cruise ship docks for 1 day in Rotterdam, Holland. We are not interested in the expensive ship/shore excursions. Can anyone recommend alternatives so we may see the sights and city on our own?

Hi H,

I don't recommend spending the day in Rotterdam.

It is 1 hr to Haarlem by train
It is 1 hr to Amsterdam by train
It is 0:30 hr to Den Haag by train

All direct.

This recent Times article provides some pointers. I've not been there recently.

The Boijmans van Beuningen museum is quite well-known:

Notice that the website features "Tower of Babel" (which I think is a Brueghel painting, but I'm not sure if this is a copy or the original -- there's one in Vienna also (?)).

Sorry -- I've not been there personally (I've never been to Rotterdam).

I did think about going a few months ago.
