Visiting Rotterdam
Rotterdam is a modern, international city. The port of Rotterdam is by far the largest in Europe, but the city has much more to offer, such as a striking modern architecture, several theaters and a lively shopping district. Erasmus University’s campus is situated a few kilometers east of the city centre, with good public transport connections. Information about getting to Rotterdam and examples of suitable hotels can be found at the JURIX 2009 website (www.frg.eur.nl/jurix2009).
