48 Hours in Rotterdam: A Local’s Guide
By Anne-Marie Ros
I use my city as a canvas in the things I love doing best, sharing my love for Rotterdam with you.
If you like to explore the city like a local, you book me as your guide for a Tour in Rotterdam. I promise you an exciting experience as I will push you off the beaten tracks and embrace the unexpected on our way. No standard routes. You name it, I create it. Expect a mixture of art, history, architecture, urban art, hospitality, retail, human interest, the hip and happening, personal stories, great photo opps – a sort of behind the scene in the city. Together we make new memories. (Groups up to a maximum of 10 people).
I am a multitalented professional and artist. With a creative approach I make beautiful things happen in communications, project management, organize curated art-tours and really nice city-tours. I’m a partner at SiLO (the coolest accounting firm in Rotterdam for arts, culture, hospitality and the creative sector). With my architect friends we created wooll-e, a no-drilling-wall-lamp with changeable sleeves. New are my unique and fascinating minimass TINY ART pins, wearable – shareable small stories, just a great gift to spoil yourself or a loved-one.. Some are Rotterdam themed.
I like to be challenged and that’s easy in Rotterdam, a city that is never finished. We have a habit of doing things differently here, with a no-nonsense and down-to-earth attitude. It’s a city of opportunities and one that embrace people with initiatives. The (inter)national art scene, great restaurants, bars and many events makes it fun for everyone!
I live in a great part of town and love the river Maas that runs through the city as an artery: bringing good energy with its never ending low and high tide, reflecting the light beautifully and giving room to our unique skyline – no matter which bridge I take or on which bank I am – it’s just perfect.
Although Rotterdam rules many must-see-city-lists now and we provide many free maps that point you in the right direction, you still have to work hard to find your way to the realness here – so Rotterdam is not great for lazy people!
In 2009 I became a city-blogger and started writing for Spotted by Locals, teaming up with my dear friend Rénia as we like to travel the city together… In 2016 Spotters by Locals asked us to continue as solo-bloggers here, so we did :blush:
Enjoy my city, that I call my home.
