    Typically Rotterdam: Wiite de Withstraat

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Nov 5, 2014

    De Witte Withstraat is an exclusive shopping street. Separated by the Westblaak from the busier mid-town pedestrian shopping areas, the Witte de Withstraat is a quiet street where life starts later and lasts longer.

    You find shops like:
    -Marlies Dekkers (lingerie)
    -Sluijter & Meijer (woman's clothes)
    -Betsy Palmer (Shoes!)
    -Seventyfive (Sneakers)
    -Margreeth Olsthoorn (fashion)
    -De Bazar (Oriental restaurant and Hotel)
    -Haring design (Home furnishing)

    Oude Binnenweg: Great variety of shops and bars

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Nov 7, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Oude Binnenweg is a piece of Old Rotterdam in the modern reconstructed center.

    You'll find some od the typical Rotterdam atmosphere here with a mix of modern art.

    I recommend you have a break here at one of the bars and enjoy the people watching from the terrasses.

    De Lijnbaan: The Main Downtown Shopping Area

    by pieter_jan_v Written Aug 9, 2009

    De Lijnbaan is the main Rotterdam downtown shopping street. It was special designed in 1949 when the heart of Rotterdam, that was destroyed in World War II had to be rebuild.
    The aim was to create a mix of living and shopping areas.

    The name originates from the old rope-walk that was located here from 1667 till 1845.

    The Lijnbaan opened in 1953 and is a pedestrian area.

    Most major Dutch chain stores have a branch at this street.

    Newer shop developments are under construction at the South side of the Lijnbaan at the so-called "Koopgoot".
