Pentecost Rotterdam

20 - 21 May


Pentecost Short break Rotterdam

Like at Easter, many day trippers use the long Pentecost weekend for a short break. Pentecost usually coincides with Dutch school holidays and as Pentecost takes place 50 days after Easter, the weather in Rotterdam is usually much better. The combination of spring in the air and a couple of days off brings many foreign (and Dutch) tourists to Rotterdam at Pentecost.

Attractions in Rotterdam at Pentecost

No special activities will be organized during the Pentecost weekend, which make Rotterdam Zoo, Spido tours and the Euromast very popular and at Pentecost, Museums in Rotterdam are open as well. It can be very busy at these attractions, so it is better to get there early!

Shopping in Rotterdam at Pentecost

On Whit Sunday, shops are closed in Rotterdam, but on Whit Monday most shops will be open: the stores in Rotterdam Downtown, the Alexandrium shopping Mall and the Zuidplein mall. The store hours on Whit Monday are like a normal Sunday opening, ie the shops open between noon and 5pm.
