Original part of Rotterdam which was not distroyed in WWII. This is how Rotterdam must have been. Very nice and away from the contrasting modern.

Delfshaven offers a look back at how Rotterdam use to be. It has a very old feeling to it and it's fun to just wander down the old streets. Great place to spend an afternoon.

The old part of rotterdam. Very nice buildings and nice restaurants. Worth a visit. You could combine it with a trip to the Euromast and the park which is next to the euromast

After seven months living here, I still think this is the cosiest and different part of the city. The historical differences, multicultural inhabitants, cheaper prices make it good for grocerie shopping or even drinking.
