What is not to be found in Rotterdam?! This well know place is not often visited by boaters, and that's a shame! A visit to this vribrant city is more than worth it.
Close to the old Veerhaven, you can tie up in marina het Boerengat. After just a short walk you can not only enjoy a drink on one of the many terraces at the Oude Haven, but also watch the many traditional flatbottemed sailing barges that call this harbour home. On the adjoining traditional shipyard the boats are not only being maintained but also restored. This way they help kepping the nautical heritage of Rotterdam more than alive.
Looking for some more "activity"? Then maybe visiting the Veerhaven in the old "Scheepvaartkwartier", or the maritime quarter, is certainly a treat. The fantastic historic floating harbourmasters office is certainly not to be missed. And many of the fantastic old building in this lively neighbourhood are home to cafes, bars, restaurants and other great places! Terraces will be overflowing until late at night during summer and are awaiting your visit!
