Welcome to the Netherlands!

For the first time in its history, the World Police & Fire Games are being organized in the Netherlands. In the land of tulip fields, windmills, clogs and cheese. The Netherlands is an open-minded country, rich in magnificent nature, vibrant cities and friendly villages. Where everyone is welcome and feels at home

Every year, millions of tourists come to the Netherlands, and many of them visit the capital Amsterdam, with its historic center, canals, coffee shops and famous museums. But the Netherlands is so much more besides.

Rotterdam: host city 2021
Rotterdam has the honor of organizing the World Police & Fire Games 2021. Every year, more and more tourists come to Rotterdam. This world city is constantly renewing itself, and is also known as 'Manhattan on the Maas'. Rotterdam is buzzing with life. This dynamic city has sparkling skyscrapers, is inextricably linked to water as a port city, and has trendy restaurants, fantastic museums and special attractions. In Rotterdam, you never need to be bored.

The motto on Rotterdam’s coat of arms is ‘Sterker door strijd’, which in English means: 'Stronger through effort'. The motto is a reminder of the strength with which the people of Rotterdam endured the trials of the war, and the part they played in the liberation of the Netherlands. Undoubtedly, these words also apply to the participating services while they are carrying out their work. It’s a perfect match between the Games and the city. Come and experience it for yourself.
