This inner-city harbour is famous for its canals, historic buildings and courtyards. Stroll the historical streets, wharves, and canals, and explore the hidden treasures of Delfshaven, a real nostalgic place. Both locals, and tourists enjoy this nice piece of heritage. The two historical bridges are...More

After stuffing ourselves at the Markthal, we were off south on the tram to Delfshaven, the only part of Rotterdam that the Nazi bombardment missed. It’s almost shocking to see an entire neighborhood of buildings here that are hundreds of years old. The big attraction:...More

As a small old Dutch icon of an old sea- and waterborne country, Delfshaven develops some historic charm with its old buildings and an anchor-place for typical Dutch house-boats. While the history of the so called Pilgrim-church is totally overrated (the famous pilgrims just boarded...More

If you love history, it is one of the places to visit in Rotterdam. Long ago it belonged to my home town Delft. Go get a jenever, see where the pilgrimfathers left, nice old housers

We took a long walk here from the cruise port which took us mainly along the waterfront. Other people we met took the water taxi located at the cruise terminal to Delfshaven which sounded a great experience. We visited on a Sunday and the area...More

While it's true that Delfshaven gives you a view of a different and more historic-looking part of Rotterdam, we were underwhelmed by how little there was to do. It's maybe a nice place to grab a meal by one of the canals, but otherwise you've...More

A strawl through Delfshaven gives you an idea of how beautiful Rotterdam was until it got bombed in May 1940. Luckily this suburb escaped the bombing and it is still a vibrant part of a new city. Rotterdam has a fantastic skyline but if you...More

One of the few old areas of Rotterdam not destroyed by NAZIs. Pilgrims sailed from here on way to England then Plymouth Rock. Pleasant, quiet, quaint. Visit the chuch where the Pilgrims may have worshipped
