Hot Spot:

On 24 January the official opening will take place, but as of 1 January 2001 Rotterdam is the new Cultural Capital of Europe. Each year one or more cities are chosen by the Council of the European Union. This year Rotterdam shares in the honour with Porto in Portugal.

The official opening coincides with the opening of the annual International Film Festival Rotterdam and the reopening of the first part of the renovated Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.

The program lasts from January until December; almost all Rotterdam museums and theatres take part in organizing one or more of the fesitivities, while Erasmus University Rotterdam makes its own contribution.
