It is an old/traditional part of Rotterdam. Inside city harbour. Some fancy restaurants can be found on the kades. Spare 30 minutes and go for a walk.

This small part of Rotterdam takes you some hundred years back in history. From here the first immigrants headed via England to America. There is an impressive wind mill from the 18th century. This area is easy to reach by tram.
