Erasmus University EUR
With a population of over 600,000, Rotterdam is the second largest city in the Netherlands and the centre of the Rotterdam-The Hague metropolis. It's famous for its port, one of the biggest in Europe. The River Maas runs through our 'skyscraper city' with its innovative architecture. Behind the modern skyline, you'll find a nice, even 'cosy' historic city centre.
