Favorite thing: Holland Casino Rotterdam has opened its completely new facilities to the public. The little church is the place to obtain playing information, and for just 10 euro cents, you can play the slot machines on Kloostersquare. Also there is the Jackpot Club with its more than 600 money-spewing slot machines. On the second floor you'll find the tables of American Roulette, Black Jack, Caribbean Stud Poker, Punto Banco, Sic Bo and French Roulette. Near Centraal Station metro station.
I'd never considered Rottterdam as a tourist city on my previous visits - just a place to change trains (and of course having the Centraal station surrounded by a building site didn't help). But now that I've managed an afternoon/evening wandering the city it's given me a taster of the tourist city - and a very scrumptious one too.
As well as the various pages here on VT for an idea of what to expect from the city the VVV Tourist Info website is well worth a visit - VVVRotterdam. This is one of the most comprehensive tourist info websites I've come across and is packed with information covering every conceivable tourist query including accomodation, events listings, places to visit and see and even has an up-to-date city news section.
As well as the website there are two VVV offices in the city centre: The Tourist Info Cafe on Stationsplein (at Centraal Station) and the main Rotterdam.Info office on Binnenwegplein (near Beurs). Both of these are open seven days a week with varying hours which you can find on their individual websites.
