a look back in time!
Sep 2020
If you like to know how Rotterdam looked befor the war. Delfshaven gives you a peek in history! With the old houses and bridges and "jenever"factories. It's no doubt one of the nicest aireas in Rotterdam! Easy to reach by Watertaxi

Calm, traditional and small neighborhood in Rotterdam
Sep 2019
Delfshaven is one of the few neighborhoods in Rotterdam that was spared during the bombing of World War II and therefore still has the charm of old Dutch cities. Delfshaven is a historic area, with old buildings, canals and a windmill.
Highlight for De Pelgrim brewery, the only brewery in the city, the Church where pilgrims met before traveling to America and the warship De Delft.
Great to have a walk and take some pictures

The different Rotterdam

Beautiful part of Rotterdam with some houses, cafés, windmills and churches from the 17th century. Very nice for walking around and discovering by yourself.

From whence the Pilgrims sailed
Jan 2020
Delfshaven was a 15 minute metro ride from Blaak where we were staying. We spent a lovely 3 hours there walking around and enjoying the historic district. We visited Pilgrim church and learned all the history of the Pilgrims. There are beautiful galleries and lovely restaurants to enjoy as well.

Pilgrims and Churches
Apr 2019 • Friends
Delfshaven is where many of the pilgrims that landed on the Mayflower are originally from. A lot of them came on a boat from Delfshaven to Southampton, where they boarded the Mayflower to America. You can see where it’s said they boarded the ship and their old church. In addition, to that it’s a cute little neighbourhood!

An historic part of the city
Sep 2019
Originally this port was separate from Rotterdam, but has now been incorporated into the city. It is the place where the Pilgrim Fathers departed for their journey in the Speedwell to England, where they picked up the Mayflower. Charming streets, with a windmill at the end.

Opportunity to see a historic oart of Rotterdam
Aug 2019 • Friends
From Rotterdam, you can walk to Delfshaven, however this would take about 1.5hr. If you were to walk you could add in additional sights along the route incliding the WW2 museum.
You can equally take the underground or a tram or bus.
This historical environment is worth seeing. Old houses, a windmill and canals with old ships and riverboats. Windmill is open from 12pm on a Sunday and 11am on a Saturday and Wednesday.

Delfshaven is a mix of great history and a vibrant Arab community. Happy to enjoy both categories. Went to see the church where the Pilgrims left before hopping on the Mayflower. Love the old bridge, the wooden boats, the windmill and the arab bakeries.
