Netherlands: Rotterdam Centraal Station

Rotterdam Centraal Station at night.

All main railway stations in the Netherlands: Amsterdam Centraal - Den Haag Centraal - Rotterdam Centraal - Utrecht Centraal have undergone massive modernisation and renovation. Only Utrecht Centraal is not finished yet, and I cannot wait for the new Utrecht Centraal Station (the largest railway station in the country) to be unveiled very soon.

So last June, Dutchman and I were able to find our way to Rotterdam with the train which means we were able to finally check out the new Rotterdam Centraal Station. It looks quite impressive! Definitely state of the art design =). Well done.

This newly renovated train station was officially opened 2 years ago by none other than the king of the Netherlands, King Willem Alexander.

The station is designed to accommodate a daily commuter capacity of 110.000 (which is the current number of commuters) up to 320.000 as expected in 2025. The renovation project took 9 long years.

I managed to take a lot of pictures. Hope you enjoy them.

All centraal stations in the Netherlands have a piano.

The huge lobby of Rotterdam Centraal has a wide screen featuring all things Rotterdam.

Just outside the station beside the square you can find the city trams.
