The 'Scheepvaartkwartier', rotterdam
Wealth and romance surrounds an idyllic inner harbour. This romantic part of town is a protected urban landscape. Imposing town houses line broad, stately lanes, recalling Rotterdam’s rich history in shipping. One of the loveliest spots is the Veerhaven inner harbour, where historic sailing ships rock gently on the water. Het Park is a popular place to relax and have a picnic in the warmer summer months. It also hosts all sorts of festivals and events. A prominent feature in the park is the Euromast, the highest observation tower in the Netherlands. Situated at a height of 100 metres, its restaurant offers a panoramic view of the city and the port.
