What do I need to know about living in Rotterdam?

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

"Before retiring in Rotterdam, expats should be aware that the cost of living is relatively high compared to other cities in the Netherlands. Additionally, expats should research the different neighborhoods in Rotterdam to find the one that best suits their needs. It is also important to note that Rotterdam is a very multicultural city, so expats should be prepared to interact with people from many different backgrounds. Furthermore, expats should be aware that the weather in Rotterdam can be unpredictable, so they should be prepared for both warm and cold temperatures.
