Fashion shopping in Rotterdam
If you like fashion, Rotterdam is a great city to go shopping. The shops in the city centre are open seven days a week and there is something for everyone. From casual to sophisticated, from retro to futuristic, from megastore to mini boutique. To help you on your way, we have selected some nice addresses for you.
Beurstraverse: This street, which runs underneath the Coolsingel, is also known as the Koopgoot (‘shopping gutter’). This is where you will find the big chains stocking famous brands. For some reason, children love the little fountains.
Nieuwemarkt & Pannekoekstraat: This trendy district is sometimes called the Soho of Rotterdam. Here you will find lots of Bohemian, retro-style shops and special design shops.
Witte de Withstraat: Artistic, multicultural street with lots of galleries, welcoming cafés and, for fashion lovers, avant-garde fashion shops. Very nice!
De Meent: A rapidly evolving shopping area for the young & trendy. Many concept stores and single-brand shops for hip people who like to discover the latest trends.
Oude Binnenweg and Nieuwe Binnenweg: The ‘old’ Binnenweg turns into the ‘new’ Binnenweg; both sections are full of great, exciting fashion, jewellery and shoe shops.
Van Oldebarneveltstraat and Kruiskade: This little area is often called the fashion district of Rotterdam. These are the more exclusive shops stocking the most beautiful brands.
Oude Noorden: Just outside the city, this old people’s district is being transformed into an up and coming shopping area with many young designers and creative business people. Loads of fun guaranteed!
