Rotterdam + The Southwest Netherlands

Rotterdam + The Southwest Netherlands Travel Guide

The seat of Dutch government, the royal family, the International Criminal court, and the country’s diplomatic community, this city is a jewel that’s an easy half-hour train ride from Amsterdam Centraal. It’s smaller in size than the capital but, many say, far more sophisticated.

Well-edited contemporary Dutch design.

The museum holds Rembrandts, Brueghels, and two of Vermeer’s great masterpieces, Girl with a Pearl Earring and View on Delft.

With a name meaning "Studio Re-Use," it makes sense that the space holds a wacky collection of cradle-to-cradle objects, clothing, and accessories. Created by Jan de Haas, the space is meant to showcase every kind of reuse experiment that comes along.

A mix of art and design, including work from Piet Hein Eek and Jurgen Bey.
