Covid - 19

 In Rotterdam public life has gradually opened up again. Public Transport started running a normal service from June 1st, but the 1.5 m distancing rule limits the number of seats and standing room considerably.  Shops are open, most with a door policy and designated routing. Same applies to tourist attractions. CafĂ©'s and restaurants are open from June 1st. Restaurants work on reservation basis only. All guests must be seated. Name and contact information must be given. Bars and restaurants close at 1am. Last admissions at midnight.  Busy spots are to be avoided. Unfortunately the number of infections is rising again. Keep Rotterdam healthy!

Market Hall in autumn



The best way for getting to know a city is to explore it on foot. This is true for Rotterdam as well. Walking through the city you get a feel for the diversity of the place and you get a picture of how the city has developed over the centuries. I have developed a self guided walk through the centre of Rotterdam (and a little beyond), that will give a thorough first impression of the city.  The walk guide book is available from bookshops and can be ordered online
