Walk around the Old Harbour


The Old Harbour, with its charming cobblestone streets and vintage ships, takes you back in time and gives you a glimpse of what life was like in the past. It’s a true gem, dating all the way back to the 14th century; holding the title of the city’s oldest port! As you stroll through its historic streets, you’ll see a captivating mix of old and new buildings that create a distinctive landscape. It’s a cool mashup of old and new that creates a totally unique vibe.

If you get a bit peckish on your walk you can stop by one of the many cafes and restaurants in the area. Harvest Cafe & Bakery is great for fresh pastries and coffee, while LOT&DAAN serves equally tasty brunch staples. If you end up being in the Old Harbour around dinner time, why not try one of the best Indian restaurants in the city, 91Spices.

The nearby Mariniers Museum is a treasure trove of nautical artefacts and exhibits. It’s a must-visit for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in Rotterdam’s rich marine corps history.
