Rotterdam is the second-largest city in the Netherlands and a surprisingly wonderful destination for LGTBQ+ travelers. A vibrant atmosphere, welcoming community and an incredible culture that constantly pays homage to the city’s seafaring history make it one of the best locales in the country.

 

Rotterdam boasts its own gay neighborhood, known as the gay triangle, centered around the communities of Churchillplein, Westblaak, Mauritsweg and van Oldebarneveldtstraat. Here you’ll find a variety of LGBTQ+ bars and venues. Strano is the most popular spot among young locals and tourists and offers an excellent place to dance, along with Cafe Keerweer. Loge ‘90 offers a slightly more relaxed atmosphere for the older crowd.

 

When it comes to dining both FERRY and Nostra are popular restaurants that cater to an LGBTQ+ clientele while also offering excellent food. If you’re lucky enough to be in town on the first Tuesday of the month, you’ll find LGBTQ+ cinema selections at the famous LantarenVenster. Other places of interest around the city include the SS Rotterdam, a spectacular cruise ship in the dock with great views; the Euromast, a tower that is one of the largest buildings in the city; and The Markthal, a covered food market boasting traditional dishes. Be sure to take a stroll through Historical Delfshaven while you’re in town to enjoy some of the city’s breathtaking architecture.

 

Rotterdam might not offer the glitz and glamour of more popular European cities, but it’s beautiful landscape and friendly locales more than make it worth the trip.
