Nieuwe Werk (Scheepvaartkwartier)
In this upscale neighborhood, at the foot of the Erasmus Bridge, you can still feel the atmosphere of the past. The neighborhood, also known as the Scheepvaartkwartier, is characterized by large stately and monumental buildings that were once owned by self-made shipping magnates, bankers, and directors. These buildings create a beautiful contrast with the modern high-rises on the east side of the neighborhood. At the heart of the neighborhood is the charming Veerhaven, alongside the Van Vollenhovenstraat where many restaurants and amenities are located. On the west side of the neighborhood lies Het Park, near the Euromast, which is considered the most beautiful backyard of Rotterdam! This neighborhood is the place to be for great food, historic buildings, and the quays of the Scheepvaartkwartier that constantly remind you that the sea is not far away.
