How can we help you?

When the mouths of the river Rotte were closed in 1250, the foundation was laid for the port of Rotterdam as we know it today: the largest port in Europe. Experience its rich history at the various museums and exhibitions within and outside the port area. They not only allow us to look back, but also to look ahead at the unique perspectives and plans for the future.


You can't get any closer to a new piece of the Netherlands and a port under construction than this. Information Centre FutureLand allows visitors to discover the many aspects of the construction of a new port. Entrance to FutureLand is free for anyone who is curious about Maasvlakte 2 and who is not afraid to experience the construction of this historic land reclamation in person.
