Everyone in Rotterdam knows the Maasboulevard with its beautiful view over the river and the skyline of Manhattan on the Maas. Behind the Maasboulevard lies the Struisenburg district. Around the ports of Buizengat and Boerengat, the district extends from Oostplein to the stadium of football club Excelsior. Several large old office buildings in the center of the district have recently been converted into homes for students and starters. On the west side of the neighborhood around Oudedijk and Oostplein you will find many restaurants, bars and nice shops.
