Travel and stay in Rotterdam

As IFFR Academy guest we are looking forward to welcoming you to Rotterdam! To give you a complete festival experience, we provide you with a few tips on where you and your students can stay during their visit to Rotterdam. We work closely with a couple of excellent hotels, all within walking distance of the heart of the festival. But for students (and their budget), a hostel in the city center might be a better fit. Here you can find a few of the best hostels Rotterdam has to offer. 

Most festival locations are at and around Schouwburgplein, and thus within walking distance of Rotterdam Central Station. The only exception is LantarenVenster at De Kop van Zuid, which is easy to reach by metro and tram. From Rotterdam Central Station you can take metro D or trams 20, 23 or 25; exit at ‘Wilhelminaplein’. For more information about timetables and planning your travel, you can visit the website and the website You can also visit our festival locations map.
