About this journey

Holland’s jazzed up port city

Holland’s jazzed up port city Rotterdam, until recently, was the world's largest port. This seaside location helped to grow the city into the largest economic center in the Netherlands at the turn of the twentieth century. Bombing ripped out the heart of the city during WWII, and instead of aiming to rebuild what was lost as many other leveled cities have done, the city council took the opportunity to create a new and better city instead. Although close to 50% of the population of Rotterdam today is not native to the Netherlands, you can still find a "can do" mentality in its people. This thrust toward modernity is on display in the architecture around the city. The Kijk-Kubis – or Museum House, is a fully furnished showcase house among an unusual collection of cube-shaped homes. The interior was specially developed to give visitors an impression of how it's possible to live in a cube house with sloping walls. The Kunsthal Rotterdam is designed by famed avant-garde architect (and native son) Rem Koolhaas. The building is as much the destination as what's housed inside. The museum stages some 25 exhibitions a year in a wide range of disciplines : new art, design, photography, and frequently experiments with themes never seen before. Like lingerie. For aural art, the annual North Sea Jazz Festival is held every second week of July. Founded by a wealthy businessman and jazz lover, the fest began in 1976 and was an immediate success. The event has grown to 15 stages, 1200 artists and nearly 25,000 visitors a day, and is known for the many musical styles it presents : from traditional New Orleans jazz to funk and soul. Past performers include Sarah Vaughan, Count Basie and Dizzy Gillespie. Learn more about Rotterdam

Just a dab leaves you longing for more

Just a dab leaves you longing for more Cologne or "Köln", as the locals call their city, is so rich in history that excavations can date the area back to 38 BC when the Romans set up camp here. Cologne is over 2000 years old and was once a center for international trade. With that came riches, which helped build the city's incredible architectural gems. Exit the centrally located Cologne Hauptbahnhof (main train station) and find yourself smack dab in front of the city's biggest and best sight : the magnificent Cologne cathedral (Köln er Dom). Think of the church as your compass (moral or otherwise) around the capital of Rhineland. The edifice will seemingly follow you, as it can be seen from nearly every point in the city.
