Trains ride into Rotterdam Central Station and leave again. The polar bears at Blijdorp Zoo jump into the water in their cages and people are hard at work in the harbor of Rotterdam. There is plenty to see at MiniWorld Rotterdam, the biggest indoor miniature world in the Benelux.
Go on a treasure hunt
There are great and funny scenes hidden throughout the miniature world. Ask for the treasure hunt at the entrance and go on a voyage of discovery through MiniWorld Rotterdam. It’s not just fun, you’ll also learn all about Rotterdam, water management and architecture.
Because Rotterdam was flattened by bombs during WWII, little is left of the old city center. MiniWorld Rotterdam has built replicas of a few of the historic buildings, bringing pre-war Rotterdam back to life.
Day and night
Night falls at MiniWorld Rotterdam every 24 minutes. The light changes and the sun sets. The city and landscape look very different at night.
Hotel Emma is within walking distance of MiniWorld Rotterdam and has cozy family rooms.
