Photo gallery

How can we help you?

This page includes portraits of the general management of the Port of Rotterdam Authority, as well as various photo impressions of Rotterdam’s port area. All photographs are royalty-free and free to use, provided you clearly state the photographer and the port of Rotterdam Authority.

This gallery is updated once a year. The photographs are free to use for a term of one year from their date of publication on this page. This use is subject to the same terms and conditions as those set out for the other materials included in the Media Kit. After this period, the photographs are replaced with new images and the right to use the previous selection lapses.

Would you like to produce your own photographs or video footage of the port area? Towards the bottom of this page, we have included a map indicating which locations are open to the public for shooting photos or video footage.
