Visit the Central Station

There is something special about the Central Station of Rotterdam. If you arrive by train in Rotterdam, you get excited to see Rotterdam the because the train station gives you a warm welcome. The Central Station is beautifully designed and won many awards because it’s a pleasant, open and transparent public transport terminal. The most striking part of the Rotterdam Central Station is the roof. The locals call this international gateway 'haaienbek' which means something like the mouth of a shark. This has everything to do with the odd shape of the roof which is pointing towards the city center.
