On September 21st, Rotterdam was proclaimed IFEA World Festival & Event City. This date marked the 60th jubilee conference of the International Festivals and Events Association in Tucson, Arizona. In fact, Rotterdam was the only European city to win an award. Lonely Planet also declared Rotterdam as one of the “top-ten cities in the world for travellers 2016”. Rotterdam owes its fifth position in Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2016 to its futuristic architecture, impressive art and culture, culinary offer and entertainment options. "The Netherlands' second-biggest metropolis is a veritable open-air gallery of modern, post-modern and contemporary construction," says Lonely Planet.
