The Kop van Zuid and Katendrecht have developed into one of the most exciting neighborhoods of Rotterdam and we combine them in this tour. Note that Katendrecht is part of the 50 Coolest Neighborhoods In The World!
In the Kop van Zuid we focus on the development of the Wilhelminapier and the modern architecture, like the striking ‘vertical city’ from acclaimed architect Rem Koolhaas: De Rotterdam. Also very interesting in this tour is the history of the emigrants via the Holland America Line and the iconic Hotel New York.
Then Katendrecht, Rotterdam’s former China town, once the largest red light district of Europe. In the old famous harbour district you can expect all the exciting details about the illustrious past. Furthermore our guide inform you about the best restaurants and latest developments of this new born quarter, like the ‘Emigration Museum’ in the former Fenix Factory II, once the largest warehouse in the world. Highlights of Katendrecht include the Fenix Food Factory and the ocean liner SS Rotterdam.
