Located in the South Holland province, Rotterdam is one of the Netherlands' most lively cities, as well as one of the largest trading ports in the world.
On the 16th (Tue), get in on the family fun at Efteling. Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to Rotterdam Centraal Station, find something for the whole family at Madurodam, then get a sense of history and politics at Binnenhof & Ridderzaal (Inner Court & Hall of the Knights), and finally take in panoramic vistas at Euromast.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Rotterdam planning site .
