Route description by car
The harbours (Haven in Dutch) in Rotterdam are all numbered and well signposted. The RDM is Haven 2600.
On the A15 (Ring Rotterdam Zuid) take exit 18: Heijplaat. At the end of the exit follow the signs for Heijplaat/Havens 2250-2750. Follow the signs for Heijplaat, and continue straight on, on Reeweg and Waalhavenweg. Do not go left at the sign for Heijplaat – this is the exit to the village. Drive straight on, on the Droogdokweg (follow the road as it bends to the right) towards Havens 2547-2619. After the next sharp bend to the right (Heijplaatweg) car park A is situated to the left
Look for Waterbus Number 18. You can board at Erasmusbrug, St. Jobshaven and Katendrecht for the destination marked RDM/Heijplaat. This fast catamaran takes around 15 minutes and departs twice every hour. Check the current schedule on the Waterbus website.
Departing from every watertaxi location, the Watertaxi takes you to RDM in no time. In addition, there is a permanent M4H-RDM shuttle service between Merwe-Vierhavens (Marconistraat, where you can park your car for free) and RDM. In that case, the journey across will take you four minutes. The M4H-RDM Shuttle sails in peak hours mornings between 07.00 and 09.00 hours and afternoons between 16.00 and 18.00 hours, every 6 minutes. If you would like to come to our premises from another watertaxi location, please make a booking via the Watertaxi Rotterdam website.
We recently moved from Delft to our new headquarters on the RDM. Please update your records with our new address.
