Landmark
Stroll the historical streets, wharves, and canals, and explore the hidden treasures of Delfshaven, the neighborhood that was one the Netherlands' gateways to the New World. Now a part of Rotterdam, the area originally was developed as the port for the nearby city of Delft. It was the center of the Dutch East India Company, the birthplace of Captain Piet Hein, and the port from which the pilgrim fathers departed for Southampton on the Speedwell. Indulge in the laid-back atmosphere, admire the well-preserved buildings, and take a break from sightseeing at one of the numerous pubs and restaurants. The area is the home to a selection of galleries featuring local arts and crafts, as well as Rotterdam's only brewery. For a true Dutch feeling, tour the area by bicycle. Make Delfshaven a part of your Rotterdam vacation plans using our Rotterdam vacation trip planner.

  • Walked over there, very nice old buldings and cannals. It was very quiet, nice to sit outside and have a beer.  more »
  • A nice piece of Rotterdam, but in my eyes a bit overvalued here. At this time a 12th place in Rotterdam. I do not agree. Adjacent neighborhoods are also not really nice, so go here especially for would be my advice do not have.

  • On Sunday morning a delicious and quiet walk. The harbour is atmospheric. The pictures with background information on the history very interesting.
