The central station is connected to the high speed train as well, so within no time you can travel to Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport, Antwerp, Brussels and Paris.

In the heart of Rotterdam

Rotterdam Central Station is centrally located in the heart of the city centre. (What's in a name?) From this station you walk via Weena or Kruisplein to the shoppingarea Lijnbaan and to the bars and restaurants at Stadhuisplein. If you're searching the central station, orientation is made easy. Just look up, as the station is located next to the Delftse Poort skyscraper, the highest office tower downtown Rotterdam! You can also find several fine hotels within walking distance from Rotterdam Central Station such as the Manhattan Hotel, Holiday Inn Express and the Hilton Hotel.

Shopping at Rotterdam Central Station

The beating heart of Rotterdam Central Station is the passage located beneath the station with many shops and f&b outlets. Go for some last- minute shopping or have a snack or drink before/after travelling home/work. Burger King, Smullers, Dudok and Starbucks have stores at Rotterdam Central Station. In the central hall, you'll find service points for information or tickets.

Architectural masterpiece

Rotterdam is known for its modern architecture and design-wise the Central Station is spot on!. So don't expect an old historic building like in Amsterdam, but an ultramodern building with an eye-catching canopy shaped main entrance. Due to this design, Rotterdam locals call their Central Station 'the cone'.
