Cities of the Netherlands
As Europe’s largest and busiest sea port, Rotterdam has a down-to-earth, straight shooting atmosphere about it. But it’s also a city that has steadily risen as a place of interest to tourists. Rotterdam’s skyline is shaped by bold, modern architecture and at street-level, public art has been crafted by international artists.
Well the Euromast may seem a bit of an eyesore on Rotterdam’s skyline, compared with the city’s attractive modern architecture, it does provides superb views. Built in 1960, the 185 metre observation town is an iconic Rotterdam landmark. It houses two restaurants and a viewing platform from which you can see Belgium on a clear day.
Though Eindhoven isn’t among the Netherland’s usual go to places, the city is brimming with electric energy and innovation. The Netherland’s fifth-largest city, it was where electronics giant, Philips, was founded and today houses the Dutch Design Academy. Eindhoven’s contagious creativity makes it a lively place to visit.
As the birthplace of Philips, you’ll find mementos of the company all around the city, but the Philips Museum is the crowning highlight. Housed in the warehouse where Gerard Philips crafted his first incandescent light bulb, the museum is an enlightening reflection on the company and innovative thinking.
Maastricht is a city of lively orchestration, with shops, architecture, art and cuisine that rivals the likes of Amsterdam and other European destinations. The city’s multiculturalism adds to its unique flair. And as the oldest city in the Netherlands, there’s a historic atmosphere, which provides another layer of intrigue to the city.
Buried below the surface of Maastricht, St Peter’s Caves are an intriguing labyrinth of 8000 passageways, which span over 80km. Originally dug out as limestone quarries, the tunnels were eventually converted into air raid shelters during WWII. Today, they offer visitors a glimpse into the the city’s past.
