A historic part of Rotterdam

After the the bombing of the center of Rotterdam in the Second World War this is one of the few places where you can get a feeling of Rotterdam in the old days.

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.

We really enjoyed walking through this old area, particularly around the old windmill. In the morning not much is open but in the evening there are more restaurants and bars. Nice area to stay as well.

Historical evidence of the past where it was saved from the devastation during the WWII. It was a beautiful sight to stroll along this avenue of old houses. The traditional houses were a delight to see. We intentionally came here to feel the atmosphere of the place. A serene place in a typically dutch architecture.

A little slice of Amsterdam in Delfshaven. Has the appearance of a typically Dutch city pre WW (as it was not bombed) but without all the tourists. I live in the area and love it.

We had a lovely visit to peaceful atmosphere Oude Kerk and saw model of Speedwell- sister to Mayflower within and lovely stainglass. The area is quite a contrast to modern pulsing Rotterdam -certainly over new year anyway.

Delfshaven is a nice place to stroll when you have some time to yourself. Its the old part of Rotterdam with traditional houses and coffee joints. Take some time out one evening and spend it here to soak up the flavor of the city's old streets. Reach there by the subway taking the train towards Schiedam Centrum. Good to spend... More

A nice old part of Rotterdam (a pleasant contrast with the new city center) with many nice shops a nice (although certainly not posh) intercultural shopping street and many restaurants and pubs (of varying quality although at the old head near de Schie (the small river passing by it) you find some excellent ones ! ) Easy to travel to...

Traditional boats and an old haven, with wind mill and pleasant cafes, bars and restaurants. Worth a wander around to see another side of Rotterdam.
