There should be so much more at the watersides in Rotterdam. It is such a lovely place when you live in a busy city. Luckily, this year there opened another awesome spot at the waterside right behind, and from the same owners of, the De Machinist; Viskantine aan de Cool.
I love to hang around in the Museumpark in Rotterdam. They just rebuild the whole area. It is a green, quite place now where you can hang around, lay in the grass, or sit on the nice terraces of the Kunsthal and NAi. On the Museum square there are organized a lot of cool things, especially in summer; pleinbioscoop (open air movies), SWAN Market, Parade.
Normally at train stations the only place you can get a decent coffee is at Starbucks. Not that Starbucks is not good, but I prefer different, more exclusive coffee places. And that’s why you should get your coffee in Rotterdam central station (or most other central stations in Holland; Leiden, Den Haag, Amsterdam) at Lebkov & Sons!
