Historic Delfshaven is an area in Rotterdam filled with history and stories. This area is part of the old city of Rotterdam, as it is one of the few places that survived the 1940 bombing.
Walking here feels like a jump back through time; you can feel the richness of the history embedded in the street, the houses, and the marina.
This area is also known to be the birthplace of the admiral Piet Hein, who was a Dutch admiral in the eighty-year war. In Historic Dlelfshaven, you can see the monument of Piet Hein.
Moreover, this area is known for being the place of departure for many pilgrims who departed on their trip to America.
I absolutely recommend taking a stroll in Historic Delfshaven. There are a lot of cafes and restaurants with outdoor and indoor seating directly on the canal where you can sit down, relax, and enjoy the picturesque scenery of the beautiful marina.
