Hop-on/hop-off bus -> Sightseeing

Rotterdam has a number of well-known sights. You can reach most of them on a city tour by hop-on/hop-off bus. You can reach the following attractions with City Sightseeing Rotterdam:

  • Euromast
  • Market hall
  • Art Gallery
  • Cube houses
  • Cruise terminal
  • Hotel New York
  • Maritime Museum
  • Erasmus Bridge
  • Museum District
  • Delfshaven

Just get off at the nearest stop, visit a place of interest and then continue your journey.

When you get off, you should plan a few minutes' walk. Not all sights are directly at a bus stop.

Is a Rotterdam city tour worth it?

For tourists visiting the Dutch port city, a hop-on/hop-off city tour is the ideal way to discover Rotterdam's many sights in a short time.

The hop-on/hop-off buses follow a carefully planned route that covers the city's main sights, from the modern cube houses to the impressive harbour and historic Delfshaven.

For visitors who need to find their way around a foreign city or who do not speak the local language, it is reassuring to have a structured tour that guides them to the most important sights. Note, however, that these buses sometimes move slowly in heavy city traffic.

You can get off at any stop, visit a sight and simply wait for the next bus to continue your tour. This gives you the freedom to stay longer at places that particularly interest you. Bear in mind, however, that the buses only run until the afternoon.

The city tour is sometimes accompanied by multilingual guides. Otherwise, the buses are equipped with audio guides in five languages. This way you learn interesting facts and stories about the city and its sights

In short, a hop-on/hop-off tour of Rotterdam is the perfect way to get a comprehensive overview of the city, whether you're a curious first-time visitor or a returning guest looking to discover new corners.

City Sightseeing is one of the largest providers of city tours in the world. In Rotterdam, City Sightseeing is the only company that offers city tours with hop-on/hop-off buses.

The red hop-on/hop-off buses travel through Rotterdam every day. They are closed buses whose roof cannot be opened. The buses only stop at a few stops. Many passengers therefore take a city tour without getting off.

There is an audio guide on board in five languages (Dutch, English, German, French, Spanish). However, several passengers report that only the English commentary can be heard. Partly, the rides are accompanied by a multilingual live guide.


  • First departure: 10:30 a.m.
  • Last departure: 4:30 p.m.
  • Frequency: every 30 minutes
  • Duration: 1 hour

Routes & Stops
