Historic Delfshaven, Rotterdam

Historical Delfshaven is charming and a must for every tourist that wants to see something typically Dutch in Rotterdam. It escaped the bombing of Rotterdam by the Luftwaffe on 14 May 1940. Later during the Second World War, the area around the Visserijplein and other parts of the western city of Rotterdam were destroyed by Allied bombing on 31 March 1943.

It’s one of my my favourite places to take photo walks. It’s beautiful in every season. Many of these photos in this gallery were taken during a meet-up I organized with some students I met during photography classes & workshops at the Rotterdam community college De Volksuniversiteit
