History and beer tasting
Don’t forget to visit the Pilgrim Fathers’ Church during your stroll through Delfshaven. In 1620, the pilgrims gathered in this beautiful church before crossing the ocean, heading for America. Delfshaven is also the place where volunteers are building De Delft, a replica of an 18th-century warship. Visit the shipyard and discover the collection of the associated museum.
When you are in Delfshaven, don’t forget to enjoy a beer at city brewery De Pelgrim. Taste authentic Rotterdam beer and learn everything there is to know about the brewing process.
Discover the greatest places in this pleasant district in a different way and go street golfing! Café De Ooievaar lets you rent a special golf set with a very light ball and gives you the itinerary of the golf course. Follow the 9-hole course, crossing old bridges, treacherous cobblestones, and through narrow alleys.
