About Watertaxi Rotterdam

The Water Taxi is a fast and reliable alternative for anyone wanting to save time on travel, taking you to the heart of Rotterdam in a fast, affordable and spectacular way. The Water Taxi was first created in 1993 at the initiative of Hotel New York. Our sister hotel also wanted to be accessible to its guests via the water. Further down the line, the idea of developing a water-taxi network for the entire Rotterdam port area was conceived. The City of Rotterdam decided to contribute to this and constructed a network of water-taxi piers comprised of 50 different dropping-off points. This enabled the Water Taxi to become an important part of the Rotterdam transport system.
