The ship is currently based in De Rotterdamse Admiraliteit marina.
Defined as much by it’s modern identity as its location close to the North sea and the home of Europe’s largest port, the city lies at the confluence of both legs of the Maas Rivers, with water delineating the layout, the culture, and the way the city hums along. From canals and river banks, to the bridges and lakes, Rotterdam is a contemporary capital that swims with the times while holding onto its seafaring past.
Although largely wiped out in the war, Rotterdam rose from the ashes with a strength of purpose and innovative spirit, launching an exciting renaissance in urban design and modern innovation and architectural investment.
From the city center, make stops at Meent (for the street market on Tuesdays and Saturdays at Markthal or Industriegebouw), witte de Withstraat (for excellent coffee) or Wilhelminapier.
From there you can walk the Erasmusbridge towards Katendrecht above the river Maas and the old Hotel New York, and the original Chinatown and sailors quarters, where the SS Rotterdam steamship (now a hotel) is moored. Here you can take a watertaxi (a treat!) into the town center with stops at the old harbor town of Havenkwartier or het Park bij de Euromast.
From Havenkwartier you can walk towards het Park where you can find Parkiet (great for breakfast or lunch) and the beutiful Dudok in het Park. Here you also find Euromast (quite nice on a rainy day) and Amazing Oriental, a Chinese ship and supermarket. From the Park or Havenkwartier you can reach Museumpark and Kunsthal exposition park as well as Museum Boymans van Beuningen.
Then onwards to Witte de Withstraat, a historic street full of small restaurants and shops.It’s a big trek, but cut it into pieces is worth it to see the best of the city.
