Rotterdam Central Station

Every day, around 110,000 travelers pass through Central Station to use the bus, tram, metro or train.

Station building Rotterdam

Rotterdam Central Station is also called the international gateway of Rotterdam. Intercity trains from all over the Netherlands (including Intercity Direct), the Thalys, the Eurostar and other international high-speed trains stop here several times a day or even an hour.

Central Station has had a total metamorphosis in recent years and the station building is now one of the architectural icons of Rotterdam. The roof above the tracks is partly covered with solar panels and flows smoothly into the roof above the station hall. The point of this points to the center of the city. A number of historical elements of the old station building (1957) by Sybold van Ravesteyn have been preserved, such as the original clock on the facade, the Central Station letters and the 'speculaasjes', two granite sculptures on platform 1.
