Board the SS Rotterdam!

3e Katendrechtsehoofd 25, 3072AM Rotterdam

For this year's EuRuKo we have managed to secure a location so uniquely Rotterdam, it's crazy! Namely the ss Rotterdam. A ship with a rich history now permanently docked right in the smack center of Rotterdam.

Book your accommodation on the ship (yes, really).

Obviously, the schedule is subject to change.
