What to do in Rotjeknor Rotterdam
Rotjeknor! When somebody hears me say “Rotjeknor” it’s always: “haha, huh? What’s that? Rotjeknor?”
When I explain that it’s actually Rotterdams for Rotterdam they always say: “Really? I didn’t know that!” And than we continue saying Rotjeknor instead of Rotterdam.
Enough about Rotjeknor Rotterdam Charis, let’s get to the point.
Rotterdam has been proclaimed “European City of 2015” by the International Academy of Urbanism in London. A few years back I wasn’t really fond of Rotterdam, it seemed like a big and scary city to me and I thought there was nothing to do in Rotterdam. In the past few years however; I’ve changed my mind.
I love the vibe and I love the city. Rotterdam is really open and bright, you can shop at a lot of different places like Zuidplein, The Koopgoot, the Meent, etc. But there’s more!
When you’re looking for the best icecream ever: go to De IJssalon (at the Meent). If you want to go to thé building you must see (according to CNN and confirmed by many others, like me):
go to The Markthal.,a building with a lot of different food markets and restaurants with all kinds of food. There’s also a log cabin with a juice bar called “Sajoer”, here you can drink super delicious juices!
A really beautiful and fun place to go to is Hotel New York, it’s a hotel (duh) but you can also “just” eat a really nice meal or have a high tea + the view is amazing.
When you’re looking for things to do in Rotjeknor Rotterdam you could go to:
> Boijmans van Beuningen Museum, with cool expositions you can visit
> Lantaren Venster, with all kinds of artistic films and little concerts
> A little trip with the Water Taxi
> The Euromast
> Nieuwe Luxor Theater (concerts or theatre), outside you’ll see the Erasmusbrug, so it’s two in one 🙂
> The Cube Houses (in the Blaakse Bos), near the Markthal
> Dutch Photograph Museum
> Delfshaven (was once the official seaport for Delft and survived the War)
> Kinderdijk (to spot our windmills)
I would say: give it a go, visit one of the places I’ve mentioned and you’ll love Rotterdam, just as much as I do !
