The days are getting shorter, the temperatures drop and knits are all we want to wear. But winter in Rotterdam also means fun: shopping Christmas presents together and enjoying awesome events in the city.
9 December - Lightning Christmas tree
Go to the city hall at 5pm and get in the mood for the holidays. 250 children will be singing Christmas songs while the mayor turns on the lights in the Christmas tree.
