Ice-skating, pea soup and ‘Koek en Zuipie’
Although we prefer ice-skating on natural ice in Rotterdam, the Skating Rink always guarantees ice-cold fun. This is the place where the ice never has to be broken and where an extra round costs nothing. When your legs are warm and your hands cold from the ice-skating, head to the Rumah hotel for a mulled wine or cocktail. While you’re there, make it a pub crawl and visit the timeless pub Stalles, Melief Bender (from 1876!), Belgian beer Café Boudewijn or Café Steijn. Finish with a cup of pea soup (known as ‘snert’ in Dutch) from cafe Bakeliet. If you’re still feeling energetic, discover the treasures of ZOHO and taste the home-brewed beers of brewpub Reijngoud. It’s the perfect end to a lovely winter day in Rotterdam.
