Have you already decided that Rotterdam or Schiedam is your next hometown? The best way to settle in a new city is to find common ground with locals and with other expats. There are plenty of opportunities to embrace your new home town and find your way in our city. Sports, religion and social clubs may provide you with a good starting point for meeting other people and reaching out to local social networks.

Rotterdam and Schiedam are part of the Greater Rotterdam-The Hague region, a great mix between sprawling urban centres and easily accessible nature. You can read more about what it means to live in the Greater Rotterdam-The Hague region by visiting the Work in Greater Rotterdam-The Hague website.

Do you know of community or networking opportunities that may be of interest for fellow expats and that are not yet on these pages? Please let us know through our contact form.
