Christmas in Rotterdam
There is plenty to do in Rotterdam at Christmas. Every year there is the Christmas circus next to Ahoy and the skating rinks and the various museums are open. On Boxing Day you can still buy Christmas presents at the Bijenkorf. You can also contact the VVV on Boxing Day for information about Hotels, attractions, restaurants and tickets for events in Rotterdam.
Christmas market in Rotterdam
In Rotterdam you can visit various Christmas markets around Christmas, although these are less striking than the huge Christmas tree in the Koopgoot (the largest in Rotterdam) and the festively lit facade of De Bijenkorf. The Scandinavian churches organize no less than 4 indoor Scandinavian Christmas markets, a Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and a Finnish Christmas market. Every Christmas market has its own typical unique offer of gifts, decoration and delicacies from that country. In addition, you can also try the Christmas atmosphere at the somewhat smaller Christmas markets with cozy live Christmas music in Delfshaven and Overschie.
Winter Fair Ahoy
The largest Christmas market in Rotterdam is the Winter Fair in Ahoy. At this huge lifestyle fair for young and old, you will find no fewer than 250 cozy stands and, in addition to Santa Claus, you can really do anything come across. From nice Christmas presents to the latest winter fashion and from winter sports holidays to winter delicacies. A must at the Winterfair is the miniature Christmas village, definitely worth it. The Winter Fair is an atmospheric experience for the whole family.
