Rotterdam has a unique urban vibe. The diverse and multicultural nature of Rotterdam’s population is visible and tangible in its art, culture, nightlife, culinary culture, business community and literally on the streets. Practically everybody here speaks English fluently. As an expat you’ll easily find a home here, either in the city centre, or in one of Rotterdam’s scenic green suburbs. Popular areas for expats are Kralingen, Hillegersberg, Rotterdam Noord (North) and the city centre, but the quickly evolving areas south of the river Maas are also attracting an increasing number of expats. Besides the diversity and quality of its neighbourhoods, the relatively low cost of living and housing in Rotterdam compared to other cities contributes to its growing appeal.
