Rotterdam, Netherlands Futuristic architecture, excellent nightlife and a plethora of top-drawer museums are just three of the things that make Rotterdam one of the most exciting, contemporary cities in Europe right now. You’ll be surrounded by stunning views: the innovative Cube Houses and unusual Markthal have to be seen to be believed, whereas the city as a whole can be savoured from the Euromast observation deck. What’s more, the UNESCO-listed Windmills of Kinderdijk are just a drive away. Cruising the North Sea Canal The 16-mile long North Sea Canal stretches from Ijmuiden to Amsterdam and features an abundance of diverse sights, from intriguing World War II fortifications to attractive beaches and nature reserves. Amsterdam, Netherlands The effervescent Dutch capital oozes appeal, from stylish galleries and trendy boutiques to a plethora of museums satisfying all tastes; the Rijksmuseum and Anne Frank House are two fine examples. Take a canal boat tour past the intricately-decorated houses or hire a bicycle if you’d prefer to take in the local culture from a different perspective. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Discover the historic, cobbled streets of Amsterdam before enjoying a relaxing canal cruise for a different perspective of this beautiful city.
