Ok... This is Rotterdam, so there aren't many old buildings left and this part is old... That said, for me it is not special, like any other old Dutch town/ harbour.... Maybe for tourist, in combination with all the modern buildings in Rotterdam it is something, but for me it just didn't do it...

It only takes 15 minutes to get to Delft from Rotterdam by train and you only need to spend 1/2 day there but it is picture postcard Holland. Visit the windmill, wander the canals, eat in the square and read the plaques on the historic buildings.

We went to quite a bit of effort to stop by when we arrived from our train from the ferry. Was NOT worth the effort to get all the way over there. It was also not marked extremely well.

It was fun to get there via metro from Rotterdam Centraal. It was Easter Monday, so most shops were closed. A nice stroll, nothing more.

Beautiful old part of town, many restaurants,cafes,nice walk near canals. The old windmill is still turning;on a nice sunny day it's worth visiting. The tapas restaurant is good,and in the Pelgrim they have nice beer and good coffee.

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.
