Rotterdam, The Netherlands 2017
ITU Triathlon World Grand Final 14-17 September 2017


Rotterdam is The Netherlands’ second largest city and home to Europe’s largest and busiest Port. The city is well known for its modern architecture, home to the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the North Sea Jazz Festival. The city currently hosts annual sporting events such as the ‘IAAF Gold Race Rotterdam Marathon’ and the ‘ATP ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament’. Rotterdam is a city with a proud sports, arts & cultural heritage. 

The city of Rotterdam is known for the Erasmus University, riverside setting, lively cultural life and its maritime heritage. The near-complete destruction of Rotterdam's city centre during World War II (known as the Rotterdam Blitz) has resulted in a varied architectural landscape including sky-scrapers, which are an uncommon sight in other Dutch cities. Rotterdam is home to some world-famous architecture from renowned architects like Rem Koolhaas, Piet Blom, Ben van Berkel and others. The port of Rotterdam is the largest cargo port in Europe and the 10th largest in the world. The extensive distribution system including rail, roads and waterways have earned Rotterdam the nickname "Gateway to Europe", and, conversely; "Gateway to the World" in Europe.

Recently Rotterdam was listed in the top 10 Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2016 awards.
