The Lijnbaan is the main shopping street of Rotterdam. It was opened in 1953, as the main pedestrian street in the new shopping district, after the old shopping district was completely destroyed during the bombing of Rotterdam by the German Luftwaffe. It was designed by the firm Van den Broek & Bakema led by architects Jo van den Broek and Jacob B. Bakema.It's a complete car-free zone and has been a testcase for numerous car-free shopping streets around the world.There are plans to redevelop the street as part of bigger redevelopments of the shopping district. The Beurstraverse (by de Architekten Cie) is an example of these redevelopments.

  • This is not a very special Street, it is actually a typical shopping street such as those in many cities, with also many traditional shops. It is standard quite busy. But are you talking about the heart of shopping centre Rotterdam, then you have definitely over the line job.
