Delfshaven, Rotterdam
(3.9/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • If Rotterdam reflects the city of the future in the Netherlands, the Delfshaven district is well rooted in his past. Magnificent mansions lining the canals and is a strong dip pleasant in the history of Holland that stroll along these arteries.

  • These are just 2 streets but still bother to, in this large and modern city, stop by this beautiful old houses on foot.

  • Cute little street a little confused. But not really worth a visit (especially if the n Sun is not closed part)
