It’s loved and not so loved. A city reborn from the ashes of Nazi destruction, Rotterdam.

The Dutch didn’t rebuild it like the Poles and Germans did with some of their monument cities.

A visit here reveals a fresh side to the port ‘stad’.

It shows remnants of the old and shining examples of the new. I hope you enjoy this photo essay of Rotterdam.

Rotterdam Markhal

The new Markthal, a gleaming example of Dutch design and architecture. It houses a food market, cafes and eateries and is a place where you can lose an entire afternoon going from one stall to the next.
