"De Rotte, area north of Rotterdam" Top 5 Page for this destination Netherlands Things to Do Tip by ATLC

Netherlands Things to Do: 794 reviews and 1,030 photos


De Rotte is actually a river. Man made lakes and cycling/walking paths make this a place where the people of the big city Rotterdam can relax and engage in sports, swimming and recreation.
The landscape is old: dykes, farms and this wonderful windmill.
