The classic houses are a pride of Rotterdam, but unfortunately the neighborhood hasn't been the safest one. You shouldn't have a problem at day, but be a little extra careful when walking alone at night if you're a female. You could receive rude comments. Despite that, it is a nice idea to walk around, maybe get an ice cream.

Not to big area to walk around. Pity the old part is so small. You get a nice feeling of the little harbour, the small streets, the windmill , the water. Small restaurants but with a cosy atmosphere.

The Delftshafen is in the old harbour area very close to the centre of Rotterdam. There is some real history here, original buildings and ships dating back over a century or more. I have visited in several times, the latest being in December and I always enjoy the sightseeing.

We enjoyed visiting this area both because it was the site where the first Pilgrims had their church and departed from to join the Mayflower and head to the new world. The architecture and vessels in the area are fun. Takes very little time to visit and is only about a 15 minute ride from the Rotterdam Main Station on... More

I was there, we walked with my friend over the main entrance, visit some stores, and we get to the central square where we had dinner in a mexican restaurant. We pay by credit card, candies for the visitors. Good food and trademarks for girls, Zara, H&M, among others

To get a feeling of how Rotterdam used to be you should definitely visit Delfshaven. In Delfshaven you'll find a couple of the few building that survived the WOII

We visited this area on a Monday it seems everything is closed on Monday in Rotterdam Including shops and museums so we were a little disappointed with our visit and just walked around the area for a short while.
