Region (around Rotterdam), Rotterdam
Lijnbaan is a very big shopping streets.It is located in the centre of Rotterdam.Since in 1953, the streets is access only to the pedestrian so you can walked safely and enjoyed the view of the beautiful building surround it.
Delft is just a gorgeous little town. Don't pass by there without strolling (or cycling) around first.
In the town centre there is the Stadhuis, Oude Kerk and Nieuwe kerk, all beautiful buildings.
Of course you can also do your shopping for Delft china here.
We arrived to the Scheveningen at the end of August.I can't say it was warm there, but few brave girls from our group try to swim and to their words it was enjoyable.
For me it was a remind about city I love most of all- St.Petersburg. The same cold wind and northen water.
Near Groot Ammers, a small place close to Rotterdam, a nice place to visit is the information center of the stork village Het Liesvelt.
In this former stork village you can find information about the breeding of storks. Years ago it was necessary to have this village because of the decreasing population of storks in The Netherlands.
Nowadays Het Liesvelt is a good starting point for having a walk, a cycling tour or a trip by canoe.
In the information center you can go to an exhibition about the country life but also the animals who live in this area.
Kinderdijk is a small town near Rotterdam.
The main attraction of Kinderdijk are the 19 windmills, which are also mentioned on the Unesco world treasure list.
A good way to watch the mills is by boat but you can also go to the mills by bike or by foot.
I am commuting a lot between Rotterdam and France by car and I am always searching for a parking in the city centre. I used to park at the public garages but I don't like that you never know where is a free spot and besides all you pay a lot for just a couple of hours. Recently I found another company which offers one very convenient factor, namely booking your parking in advance. The company is called MobyPark (http://bit.ly/1rPLjPO) and i believe that there rates are a bit lower in average than the public garages but for me its really good to know that i have reserved my spot before even getting there - that saves me a lot of stress in the mornings.
P+R is the cheapest alternative if you have the time to park outside Rotterdam and travel by tram to the center (http://bit.ly/1nTZWQw) - you just need to get a ovchipkaart and you can travel for free. Parking on the street is not an option if you have only a creditcard cause you cannot pay with neither credit card nor coins.
The Storm Barrier in Rotterdam is something you will not see anywhere else.
It is an engineering phenomenon.
Kinderdijk is an absolute winner. 19 Windmills grouped together in what has been classified as a world heritage site.
there are several musea
a tour by boat
and you can also go to safaripark de beekse bergen nabij tilburg
On a sunny - or then on a stormy day - go to Hoek van Holland (Hook of Holland).
When we were there it was a really stormy day and it was great watching the kite surfers and the wild sea!!!
Close to Rotterdam: Kinderdijk, for everyone who wants to see windmills
Try taking the boat trip to see windmills on both sides of the water
