Visit Rotterdam

Bring a visit to Rotterdam, it is worth it and it is a few miles away from Van der Valk Hotel Delft A4. This port city is brimming with history and beautiful sights. From wandering through the world's first public art depot to visiting the country's most famous gorilla Bokito: there is a lot to do and experience in Rotterdam! 

Sights

When you think of Rotterdam, you think of the Euromast. The 185-meter-high watchtower is a real must-see during your visit to Rotterdam. Look out from the platforms over the Erasmus Bridge and the skyline of the city or book a table in the brasserie located 100 meters above the ground for a unique restaurant experience. Prefer to keep both feet on the ground? Visit the Markthal, where good food and unique living come together, look at the famous Cube Houses or stroll along the most beautiful animals in Blijdorp Zoo. 

Art & culture 

In Rotterdam there are several museums and attractions that will make your visit to the city complete. Last autumn, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen opened the world's first public art depot. The mirrored depot itself is a work of art, but inside you can browse among more than 150,000 art objects. In the Maritime Museum you will discover the enormous influence of the maritime world on our daily lives. The Kunsthal and the Dutch Photomuseum also have a beautiful art collection that you can admire. 

Shopping 

Rotterdam is a great city for shopping. In the heart of the city you can find the Lijnbaan, a partly indoor shopping street with versatile shops. A few blocks away you will find the Koopgoot with more than 40 shops. The Alexandrium Shopping Centre, just outside the city, has a wide variety of shops and amenities under one roof. You will find even more unique and vintage shops and boutiques on the Nieuwe Binnenweg, Coolsingel and Van Oldenbarneveltstraat. 

Food & drinks 

From cosy eateries on the Witte de Withstraat to a unique restaurant experience with an 18-course dinner at Tres Rotterdam: the city has a wide range of dining options.
