Nieuwe Werk (Scheepvaartkwartier)
In this chic district, at the foot of the Erasmus Bridge, you can still taste the atmosphere of the past. The district, also known as the Scheepvaartkwartier, is characterized by the large stately and historic buildings that once belonged to self-made harbor barons, bankers and directors. These are in nice contrast to the modern high-rise buildings on the east side of the district. The atmospheric Veerhaven is centrally located in the district, with the Van Vollenhovenstraat next to it, where many restaurants and facilities are located. On the west side of the district is Het Park near the Euromast, the most beautiful backyard in Rotterdam! This district is the place to be for good food, monumental buildings and the quays of the Scheepvaartkwartier, where you are constantly reminded that the sea is not far away.
