City sightseeing Rotterdam: Public transport options

When people are visiting The Netherlands, they often use public transport to visit popular tourist attractions and cities in the South-Holland region. This is because public transport is a convenient way for city sightseeing in Rotterdam and other cities. However, it can get quite costly when you are planning on travelling the whole day in the South-Holland region. Therefore, if you want to go city sightseeing in Rotterdam, we advise you to consider purchasing the Tourist Day Ticket for only €15,50. The Tourist Day Ticket enables comfortable travelling in the South-Holland region and grants unlimited access to buses, ferries, trams and the metro.

The Tourist Day Ticket can be used, for instance, when travelling to and around Rotterdam. Rotterdam is the second-largest city in The Netherlands and is famous for its remarkable harbour and many skyscrapers. Next to skyscrapers, you can find amazing architectural sites to include in your city sightseeing of Rotterdam; the Euromast, the Cube homes and the Markthal. In this dynamic global city, you can go on a large shopping spree or visit the museums in the ‘’Museum Park’’.

The Tourist Day Ticket is essential for tourists who are looking into exploring Rotterdam and the South-Holland region. With this ticket, you can travel without any restrictions and avoid the hassle of buying separate public transport tickets. The ticket is valid all day, from the first check-in to the end of the timetable of that day. However, do not forget to check-in and out everywhere you go. Just simply hold your card up against the reader near the exit, entrance or at the gates.

If you plan on travelling within one specific zone, the best option is then to buy a day ticket from the concerned transport operator. For instance, if you are only traveling in Rotterdam, then a RET day ticket for €8,00 is more suitable. However, if you want to travel to different zones on the same day within the South-Holland region; we recommend the Tourist Day Ticket.
