Yes, this friday we’re gonna have a look at Rotterdam. Where is Rotterdam? Where will Eurovision be held if it is in Rotterdam? Can Rotterdam organise Eurovision? These are just some questions which will be answered in this handy article. Enjoy it and tell us your thoughts in the comment section below.
Rotterdam is the second most populated city in the Netherlands. It has the biggest port in the whole of Europe. The city is in the west of the Netherlands, in the province Zuid-Holland. I think Rotterdam will be the host city of Eurovision 2020. Do you want Eurovision to be in Rotterdam? Let me know in the comments!
Where would Eurovision take place if Rotterdam hosted Eurovision?
It will take place in the Ahoy Rotterdam. You may already know about the Ahoy because it hosted the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2007. I think the Ahoy is a big contender for Eurovision. It is big, it has hosted a Eurovision eveni before and it has good facilities, so I think there is a big chance that we are going to the Ahoy next year.
Where is Rotterdam?
Rotterdam is in the western part of the Netherlands. It is the capital city of the province Zuid-Holland. Rotterdam has its own airport with some international flights to London and Paris and other close cities, but if you fly on Schiphol, it is only (by train) 55 minutes. From Utrecht it is (by car) one hour and from Den Bosch, it is an hour and a half.
Hot Spots of Rotterdam
Here are some of the most exclusive spots in Rotterdam, perfect for tourists.
The Markhal is perfect for a rainy day, as it’s the first covered market in the whole of the The Netherlands! Here, you can find fresh and varied food, with over 90 stalls and 20 shops or restaurants. The Markhal is also very interesting in and out, so perfect for photos!
The Euromast – a TV tower with a restaurant and luxury rooms. This is a perfect spot for overviewing the whole city via the 360 Degree viewing platform and getting some great shots of the city. Buy tickets here.
Opened in 1857, the Rotterdam Zoo is a perfect place to visit on your trip to Rotterdam. Named as one of Europe’s most beautiful zoos, Rotterdam Zoo features over 180 species of animals, with the Western Gorilla among others. You can buy tickets here.
