What do I need to know before moving to Rotterdam?

Live in Rotterdam? Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Rotterdam, they said:

"Collect as much information ahead of time about where you are going. Come over for a scout around prior to the move. Rotterdam is a lesser know city for expatriates but they are here and active on forums," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Rotterdam.

How do I find a place to live in Rotterdam?

Live in Rotterdam? Answer this Question

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"My husband was lucky enough to bump into another colleague who was relocating to Australia at the time we needed a house. Hey presto, we had a house. We shipped all our furnitre and possessions over and lived at IKEA for the first 6 monts. He had a look around at the suburbs when he came ahead of our move and decided on this one as it was quiet with lots of trees," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Rotterdam.

What is a typical expat home or apartment like in Rotterdam?

Live in Rotterdam? Answer this Question

"We live in a 3 story terraced house in quiet neighbourhood. This seems to be quite typical for the expats I know," remarked another expat in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

What should I pack when moving to Rotterdam?

Live in Rotterdam? Answer this Question

We asked people living in Rotterdam to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded:

"Converter plugs. Our situation was different as we were posted here through my husband's company, so our moving, housing, etc were easier. We were lucky to meet many people who helped us out. However, now Rotterdam has it's own website which may be useful to viewers/users of this site. See www.yourrotterdam.com. It is a comprehensive guide on how to settle in here - housing, schooling, leisure, medical, procedures and more. They also have a Rotterdam forum," remarked another expat who made the move to Rotterdam.
