About this Wheelchair Accessible Rotterdam and Kinderdijk tour

This tour starts at the cruise port or your accommodation. After the ship has docked, you find your guide by the sign she holds with your name on it. This tour brings you to all the wonders of Rotterdam. From new architectural highlights to the old typical Dutch mills in Kinderdijk. Join us for an unforgettable tour of Rotterdam and its surroundings.


Your first stop on this spectacular tour through Rotterdam is the Markthal. An enormous covered markethall where you find everything you need, to serve a delicious meal, or visit one of the many restaurants. Besides the many places to eat, there are a great variety of market stalls where you find ingredients for the most special dishes. Do not forget to try typical Dutch delicacies such as cheese and licorice. The hall itself consists of apartments and offices, with the ceiling designed in gorgeous colors by artists Arno Coenen and Iris Roskam. See for yourself why this construction is offten referred to as the Dutch version of the Sistene Chapel.

De Rotterdam

Your Rotterdam and Kinderdijk tour continues to De Rotterdam. An impressive building that looks out over the Maas river. It is the biggest building in the Netherlands, built on a surface that covers 162.000m2. For this reason, it is rightfully called the ‘vertical city’. It was named after the ‘Rotterdam’, a ship that left this exact same place, back in the day, for those wishing to travel to the US.

Cube houses

The next stop on tour is the Cube Houses. The Rotterdam cube house has been an architectural phenomenon for more than 30 years. When looking at it, it makes one wonder how it is even possible to live in it. At first, it usually feels a bit strange until you get used to being in a house that is tilted.

Erasmus bridge

You continue towards the Erasmus bridge. Because of its shape, the bridge is also called ‘the swan’ or ‘the harp’ by locals. From the bridge, you have a fantastic view of the skyline of Rotterdam and the Maas river. The bridge connects the Kop van Rotterdam with the north side of the river.


After the tour through the center of Rotterdam, your driver takes you to visit the mills of Kinderdijk. This is a drive of approximately 30 minutes from the center of Rotterdam, with a private adapted vehicle. Upon arrival, you first see a movie about how the Dutch work with water. After that, you can take a wheelchair accessible boat that brings you to see the mills up close. You need to reserve a spot on the boat prior to your visit.

When you finish your visit to Kinderdijk, your driver brings you back to your accommodation in the center of Rotterdam, or the cruise port.
