Mewis’ Personal Tips For Rotterdam

Hi! I’m Mewis, and just like you I love to travel. Travelling for me is about being aware of your surroundings, and a curiosity for culture and people. Being your guide therefore feels like a small holiday. I love the teaching, but I like the learning more. So, how do you spend most of your time? Scroll down to see where to eat, shop and hang out, and don’t forget to leave me a review.

See you at the next tour!

Outdoor Terrace: The Biergarten (Beer Garden) is open year round and the place to start the evening.


Where there is beer, there are ‘bitterballen’ (bite-size croquettes)



Get your best chocolates, perfumes, jewellery & accessories right under the city in the ‘Koopgoot’

Shopping Street: The Beurstraverse is located right under the heart of the centre, endearingly dubbed the Koopgoot  ‘Shopping Gutter’.

Top Choice: Visit the permanent exhibition of ’40-’45 at Museum Rotterdam, covering the impact of WWII in the city.

The art museum Kunsthal is located in the artsy Museum Park



City Park: Simply dubbed ‘The Park‘, this urban oasis is located close to the waterside and has the Euromast landmark at the very center.

Forest/Park: If you are craving some nature, visit the Kralingse Bos. Beautiful location for a morning hike, running around the lake or just lying in the grass.
