Delfshaven

This picturesque district in the west of Rotterdam gives you a glimpse into the city's rich past. Discover beautiful quays and beautiful monuments.

The Delfshaven was created around 1400 after the city of Delft had built a port between the Delft Schie and the Meuse. In the end, Rotterdam's desire for expansion led to the annexation of Delfshaven in 1886. Nowadays, the area still contains numerous monuments that have been preserved for hundreds of years. You can't miss the Pilgrimvaderskerk, the VOC warehouse at the Achterhaven, the Malt Mill and the Zakkendragershuisje. At the latter the brothers of the Pocket Carrier Guild met to divide the port work. The cottage from 1653 can be recognized by the tunnel that runs underneath it. The Delfshaven is a beautiful area to walk around, grab a terrace and eat.
