Parking in the heart of Rotterdam
Getting into and out of Rotterdam is easy. Park at our Westblaak location, and the famous Koopgoot is only 8 minutes away. Our Westblaak car park is also convenient for Rotterdam’s most impressive business and cultural destinations, including the World Trade Center Rotterdam (8 minutes on foot), the Witte de Withstraat artist’s quarter (1 minute), and the Maritiem Museum (6 minutes).
Do you like shopping? You could be shopping on the Beurstraverse in 8 minutes from our Westblaak car park, or enjoying the great food and spectacular architecture of the Markthal Rotterdam in 11 minutes. This great, grey glass-and-stone building in the shape of an inverted horseshoe is a haven for foodies and the home of one of the world’s largest works of art. Hoorn des Overvloeds, a 3D digital artwork on the inside of the Markthal, is an 11,000m2 rendering of fruit, fish, flowers, seeds, vegetables, and insects printed on 4,000 separate aluminium tiles.
In the cozy Scheepvaartkwartier, full of warehouses and stately buildings, you can visit the World Museum with various world exhibitions. The Tax and Customs museum is also located in this district. Both museums are easily accessible from the Scheepvaartkwartier car park. Another special feature is the Veerhaven, a port where small ships can dock. From here you have a beautiful view on the Kop van Zuid and the Erasmus Bridge. There are several restaurants on the Westelijk Handelsterrein where you can enjoy a good meal or a drink. All within walking distance of parking garage Scheepvaartkwartier.
The fact that Rotterdam was voted the best festival city in the world a few years ago is not for nothing. Not only does Rotterdam have a lot of festivals (in the middle of the summer, but also when it is freezing), the Rotterdam organizers show, with the programs they devise, a lot of guts and urge to innovate.
