Ontdek het onontdekte in Rotterdam

Rotterdam verveelt nooit. Volg de voetsporen van de locals en ontdek te stad zoals ze รฉcht is. Check hun tips, maar volg vooral je eigen pad.

Ontdek Rotterdam als een local

Bezoek de Rotterdamse Oogstmarkt voor lokale lekkernijen, een heerlijke en duurzame boerenmarkt op het Noordplein. Kijk in de 1664 spiegels van het Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, het allereerste openbare kunstdepot ter wereld. Neem een watertaxi naar de Marconistraat: de havenindustrie is hier nog voelbaar, naast het nieuwe Makers District M4H, waar veel creatieven (Studio Roosegaarde, Atelier Van Lieshout) zijn gehuisvest. Huur een fiets om de omgeving te verkennen, neem een kijkje bij de Floating Farm waar futuristische landbouw plaatsvindt. Bezoek daarna het nabijgelegen Weelde, een creatieve vrijstaat waar je kunt stoppen voor een drankje en een hapje. Het mooiste park is Het Park bij de Euromast, waar weelderig groen en iconische architectuur elkaar ontmoeten pal naast het stadscentrum. Vergeet tijdens je bezoek aan Het Park niet even te stoppen bij de verborgen historische tuinen van Schoonoord. Meer lokale tips? Kijk op www.dorotterdam.com.

DO ROTTERDAM LIKE JOLINE ๐Ÿ’š

Joline, a nationally renowned fashion designer who was one of the first to make sustainable clothing, will tell you more about the best places to relax. 

โ€˜Nature and art help me when Iโ€™m overstimulated. The @essenburgpark in my neighbourhood is new and still a well-kept secret. It has the feel of a jungle. @garagerotterdam combines art and nature and currently has a fascinating exhibition. On Sunday, itโ€™s party time for Zoef at @hetvroesenpark, where they sell delicacies from a French pastry chef in the pavilion @vroesenpaviljoen.'

Mayor Aboutaleb wins World Mayor Prize 2021 ๐Ÿ† 

The 2021 World Mayor Prize was awarded to our mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb for his commitment to treat all citizens as โ€˜Rotterdammersโ€™, irrespective of their origins and backgrounds. Without this obligation it is not possible to build a stronger, fairer city. Congratulations mayor! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’š

Congratulations to the winner of Shoutout Monday @bukman.i โœจ

To us, water is just a different type of land water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿš• When in Rotterdam, you must take the Water taxi. With 50 stops in metropolitan Rotterdam, itโ€™s most of the time the easiest way to get from point A to point B. Besides that, you can really make a spectacular entrance ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

DO ROTTERDAM LIKE DEBBIE ๐Ÿ’š

This free spirit and owner of @comedyclubhaug, guides you criss-cross through the city with a delicious laugh @dbstr

โ€˜You can find Rotterdam humour at its best throughout the city in old, brown bars such as Cafรฉ Timmer, @cafemeliefbender and Cafรฉ De Schouw. Galerie De Aanschouw is attached to De Schouw. Here, artists give their take on the theme โ€˜the meetingโ€™: often very funny and original. Rotterdam humour is very direct and always relatable. Rotterdammers like to confront one another.'

A beautiful new perspective on the Cube Houses ๐Ÿ’› Congratulations to the big winner of Shoutout Monday @farazsiddiqui7
For more than 25 years, the Swan has literally bridged the gulf between the southern and northern city quarters. She connects the city, making it whole. Anyone thinking of Rotterdam will picture the Erasmus Bridge in their mindโ€™s eye. โ€ฏ๐ŸŒ‰๐Ÿฆข

That particular bridge, however, will always remain a landmark. That angled silhouette on the waterfront symbolises the new Rotterdam โ€“ todayโ€™s city and the city of the future. ๐Ÿ’š

If the bridge has achieved nothing else, it has given the residents of Rotterdam something to be proud of. Riek Bakker would go as far as to say that the city would never have become what it is now had it not been for that bridge.

DO ROTTERDAM LIKE RORY ๐Ÿ’š

Rory (@rgstott), PR, Social Media & English Copy for international architecture and urbanisation MVRDV, will tell you more about Rotterdam's most incredible architecture icons. 

'The Wilhelminapier as a whole deserves a grand tour. The most magnificent on the pier, however, is not up for discussion; De Rotterdam (the largest building in the Netherlands! @derotterdam_) by our good friend @rem.koolhaas, who is also responsible for the extraordinary design of the @kunsthal. A little further on in Delfshaven, you will find WEST507, a monumental brick building that has been transformed into beautiful apartments @west507rotterdam. Sleek to stately, Rotterdam has got it all!'
