Sightseeing Rotterdam route: Public transport options

Public transport is an efficient and effective way to explore The Netherlands and its popular tourist attractions and cities. This is because public transport is a, for instance, a convenient method for a sightseeing Rotterdam route. However, it can get rather expensive when you are travelling for the whole day with public transport. Therefore, if want an inexpensive sightseeing Rotterdam route with public transport, we advise you to consider the Tourist Day Ticket. The ticket only costs €14,50 and grants unlimited access to ferries, trams, buses and the metro. You can travel within the South-Holland region for the whole day to The Hague, Delft and of course Rotterdam. Yet, if you are only sightseeing in Rotterdam, then the RET day ticket for €8,00 is more suitable for you.

With the Tourist Day Ticket you can explore the second-largest city in The Netherlands; Rotterdam. Discover the lively global city with its many skyscrapers and remarkable harbour. In addition to the harbour, you can add a shopping spree and countless museums to your sightseeing Rotterdam route. Some of the most impressive museums include the Maritime Museum, Kunsthal and the Natural History Museum. Moreover, Rotterdam is famous for its impressive architectural sites, such as the Markthal, Erasmus Bridge, the Euromast and the Cube homes. Besides, Rotterdam houses the oldest zoo of The Netherlands, the Rotterdam zoo, better known as ‘’Diergaarde Blijdorp’’.

The Tourist Day Ticket does not have travel restrictions and avoids the hassle of buying separate public transport tickets. The ticket is valid throughout the whole day, from the first check-in til the end of the timetable of that day. However, it is important to remember to check-in and out wherever you travel. Simply hold your card up against the reader next to the exit, entrance or gates.
