During a recent trip to Amsterdam, we decided to take in the sites of Antwerp on a loooooong daytrip. Easy, inexpensive trip by train with a transfer in Rotterdam.. Since our tickets were for any train, it just made sense to hop off at the Rotterdam Central train station and spend an afternoon exploring..
It was a little chilly and overcast but still a good decision..
It’s a newer city and that is reflected in the buildings than line the canals..and the waterfront..
Honestly I am not sure I could spend a protracted length of time here but it is well worth a daytrip from Belgium or Amsterdam..
