Wat je gaat doen
We start where the city began, at the Binnenrotte (near the Markthal). From here we will walk towards the water and you will hear everything about the pre-war history of the city, some of its most famous landmarks, and the harbor. After taking in the views at the riverside, we’ll continue towards the city center to discuss the single most impactful event in Rotterdam’s history and development: the bombing of 1940. From here on the tour goes through the center, stops at the majestic city hall, and looks at how this part of this town was reconstructed after the war. We will finish the tour at Eendrachtsplein and the Oude Binnenweg on the western edge of the city center. I want to give you the best, and most personal, experience possible. If you have any specific questions or interests, just let me know. I am flexible and can alter your private tour.
Hi, I’m Rob! In my spare time I give historic tours of Rotterdam. I have always been fascinated by history and cities. Since moving to Rotterdam in 2007, the city has interested me because it’s in no way comparable to any other place in the Netherlands. HISTORY OF ROTTERDAM – My goal is to show you how Rotterdam’s unique history shaped the city, as well as to give you a personal feel for the place, the way only a local can. I have extensive knowledge of Rotterdam and Dutch history and I love trivia and good stories. PRIVATE WALKING TOUR – I am able to cater exactly to your needs and prior knowledge of Rotterdam and the Netherlands. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a local or new to the city.
Wat er is inbegrepen
In case of rain, I will bring umbrellas.
