Great area!
Sep 2021
The Old Harbour is a lovely area of the city. It's a great place to take a walk when the weather's good and there's lots to see and do along the way. A great place to take some photo's of the cities beauty too. Well worth a visit.

Good place to sit and chill

If you are looking for somewhere to sit down and watch the world go by for a while then if in Rotterdam this is it. There are several cafes/ bars to choose from, so you should get a table.

One of the best places in Rotterdam to go for a beer. Very popular by the local people to go out. Worth to try.

This is a lovely area, even during a storm. There are lots of eateries and bars around. Very picturesque with all of the boats and also with the Witte Huis and the Cube Houses on the periphery.

Love this little harbour!
Apr 2019
This was a great place to walk, hang out, and observe local scenery but don't plan to spend a lot of time. The water, docks and houses are pretty and it is low key. I loved it here and was glad I took the time to find it. Take a quick walk and have a drink, take your photos and move on!

Great couple hours strolling and seeing the boats
Sep 2019
If you love water and boats (good sized ones really) then this will be a great walk from the main square area and along the river.

Pricey but can get extremely fun
Nov 2019
If there's a soccer game in Rotterdam then this is the place to go to just before. It gets extremely fun and cozy here. The bars here are a bit on the pricey side though. So watch carefully before ordering before you're wallet is emptied.

Pretty and Charming.
Sep 2019
Rotterdam's Old Harbour is pretty area that's nice to walk around in. It's also very lively, with many waterside restaurants and bars to enjoy a meal or drink. There's also a lot of interesting architecture, such as the Cube Houses and the Art Nouveau Witte Huis, Europe's tallest building when it was built.

Much to see and do.

Highlight of Rotterdam
Nov 2019 • Friends
Walked around the Old Harbour during a visit to Rotterdam. It is very pretty and lots if restaurants and bars nearby. The Cube Houses are also close which are nice to take a look at. It was quite quiet here too so nice to get away from the busy city centre.
