Wander off like a do-rist

Rotterdam is never boring. Follow in the footsteps of Rotterdamโ€™s locals, to experience the city as it really is. Check out their favourites but mostly, follow your own path.

Do Rotterdam like a local

For local delicacies, visit the Rotterdamse Oogstmarkt, a delicious and sustainable farmersโ€™ market on Noordplein. Look for yourself in the 1664 mirrors of Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, the very first public art depot in the world. Take a watertaxi to Marconistraat: the port industry can still be felt here, alongside the new Makers District M4H, which houses a lot of creatives (Studio Roosegaarde, Atelier Van Lieshout). Rent a bike to explore the area, take a look at the Floating Farm where futuristic farming takes place. Then visit the nearby Weelde, a creative free state where you can stop for a drink and a snack. The most beautiful park is Het Park at the Euromast, where lush greenery and iconic architecture meet right next to the city centre. When visiting Het Park, donโ€™t forget to stop by the hidden historic gardens of Schoonoord. More local tips? Check www.dorotterdam.com.

Congratulations to @arden_nl for winning Shoutout Monday with this beautiful picture of Historic Delfshaven โœจ

This picturesque yacht marina is one of the few parts of the old city that survived the 1940 bombardment of Rotterdam. It has had a remarkable history, both as the departure point from which the Pilgrim Fathers sailed for America and the birthplace of prominent Dutch maritime hero Piet Hein โš“๏ธ

@nielsmeijssen, co-owner of digital studio Todaytomorrow and founder of the honest booking site @thisismoonback, will tell you where to find a cool and affordable place to sleep in the city.

'You should try @kingkonghostel, a hostel in the popular nightlife street Witte de With. There is also a branch of the @brewpubreijngoud tasting room with more than 200 bottled beers and 24 on tap. Around the corner is cocktail bar @cafe_labru_rotterdam, where I started many a wild night.'
