One of the many wonderful things about Rotterdam is there is amazing street art to be found. You can turn a random corner and be surprised by an artist’s vision on the subject of choice. The metro D De Akkers and metro line E to Slinge go above ground after the metro stop Wilhelminaplein. Apart from the views of one of the most photographed skylines in the Netherlands, it is worth getting out at metro stop Maashaven and walking back to either metro stop Rijnhaven or Wilhelminaplein. The pillars holding up the metro rails have been craftily decorated by Rotterdam street artists. These continue till past metro stop Rijnhaven. Which one will be your favourite? The portrait of Nelson Mandela, the swan, the abstract skyline of Rotterdam which you can compare to the original… or will you be taken in by abstract vibrant colours?
Should you be feeling peckish why not stop at Diego’s for the best burgers in town or admire the architecture on the Wilhelminapier grab a bite at the Foodhallen, By Ami or Rolph’s Deli?
