Moving to Rotterdam as an expat
Industry-wise, being the city with THE largest port in the EU naturally attracts many job seekers to Rotterdam as a centre for world trade and commerce. As a result, the city became home to a number of world-class businesses in the areas of maritime and port, aerospace, horticulture, high-tech, sustainable energy, and more.
As for entertainment, the city doesn’t fail to impress, with themed annual events, colourful nightlife, architectural whimsies to explore, and a breathtaking city waterfront. Word on the streets, there’s a friendly competition between Rotterdam and Amsterdam on who’s best, so if you’re torn in choosing a destination between the two, we completely understand and relate. The city is well serviced with public transport, 6+ railway stations, with the added fun of water taxis due to its location, and the city even has the third-largest airport in the Netherlands.
