The city hall was built recently - at the beginning of the 20th century. The structure was significantly damaged during the Second World War, but still it was not completely destroyed. A new corillon with 48 bells was installed on the town hall tower. On the façade, there is a statue of the patroness of Rotterdam and sculptures that embody the national traits of the Dutch: perseverance, reliability, entrepreneurial spirit and caution.

The staff were so friendly! The garden in the backyard is a lush oasis of peace. And the toilettes are the best in town (😂)
Beautiful building with lots of original architecture. Friendky and helpful staff members. Worth a visit
Perfect place to honor Feyenoord for winning the Dutch Football Premier League season 22/23 on Monday 15th of May 2023 😄
Could not get in but the bells in the tower were playing for some time. Wish I could have got inside but so much to see and so little time. By 6pm music stopped. Huge downtown shopping district across the street. Rained most of the day so when th.. Read more »e sun comes out so does the town.
Despite the fact it was 16:15 we could not go inside because they started to clean the floor to avoid further visits. The woman at the entrance is very rude and unprofessional.

All I can say is, this place is just splendid.
If you get the chance, peek in to see the beautiful City Hall interiors — with half-finished murals from the inter-war years, statuary, historic wood finishes, and grand meeting rooms. A more modern interior design can be seen in the staff cafe.. Read more »teria in the attic.
A miracle this building is still in tact, one of few surviving structures from the Second World War. The statue’s motto speaks to this resilience. Translation from Dutch: “stronger through struggle”.
The people working there are super patient, helpful and nice. I lost my passport there and they called me cuz they've found it.
I dealt with french administration before, and I have to say this is 1000x better
Probably one of the few oldest building in the city

Beautiful but being restored - the garden is great for a little break

A spectacular building which is also the city hall of rotterdam. One of few architectural master pieces which survived the WWII. You can also go inside and look around. Unfortunately we couldn't go inside due to covid lockdown.

What a magnificent building this city hall is! It's worth a visit simply to admire the architecture. The entrance on the left of the building, opposite the police station, is for civil registry.

Perhaps this is a nice building, but people working for the gemente are absolutely disorganized and unknowledgeable.

Read more » the person on the phone that it is ok to register 4 weeks ahead (for BSN) because the request takes 4 weeks to process, and then, when I got there they told me that they could not register me. I am not sure who makes the decisions or communicates information, but there is so much inconsistency when dealing with them, i suggest moving to another city instead… just to avoid dealing with the people at gemente of Rotterdam…
On top of that, it says on their own website that it takes up to four weeks to process…
Dear staff…when you are dealing with someone’s employability in the country, you are dealing with their ability to earn enough money to put a roof over their heads and food on the table. You are not dealing with a happy meal at McDonald’s; it is about someone’s ability to survive, and you should act with an appropriate level of professionalism. I have seen more professional employees at McDonald’s.

slow and inefficient, not particularly friendly. you book a time to go, and then you wait 30 mins once you get there!
quite a large proportion of staff weren't wearing masks admist covid-19, which is a little frightening
The staff is very professional, respectful and ready to help.
