Time travel through the port
Travel through 100 years of port development
By luxury coach from Rotterdam
Merwehaven, Waalhaven, Eemhaven, Botlek, Europoort and Maasvlakte. Across 40 kilometres you experience almost 100 years of port history. But you also see the Port of Rotterdam of tomorrow and the future. Because, for a promising future, you need space. A port expansion into the North Sea was the result of the continuous expansionism of Rotterdam. At Maasvlakte 2, 40 kilometres from the centre of Rotterdam, you stand face-to-face with that future.
Port comes to life
You travel by luxury coach from the bus platform at Rotterdam CS or Willemsplein at the base of the Erasmusbrug straight through the port to FutureLand information centre. En route, the port comes to life and you see the port areas with various forms of industry. In the heart of the development of the newest port area, this interactive information centre offers views across the most modern container terminals in operation. You also see the development of new offshore activities. And all the information about the development of Maasvlakte 2 is presented in an easily accessible and playful way. From FutureLand, you can take an extensive one-and-a-half-hour boat trip. Experience Maasvlakte 2 from the water, sail around offshore giant, Pioneering Spirit, the largest vessel in the world, and visit the Europahaven on the first Maasvlakte. Sail right beneath the highest container cranes, and pass by the very largest container ships and colossal quay walls. On board, an expert FutureLand guide will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the world’s most modern port. This day will be held in Dutch, a general audio tour is available via smart phone on board of the FutureLand Ferry and in the information center.
