The Rotterdam Bar and Beer Guide: A beer tourist s guide to the best bars, breweries and bottle shops in Rotterdam
 
Product Description:
In this handy guide, we've provided details of what we consider to be the top beer bars/cafes to visit during your stay in Rotterdam. You'll also find details of the breweries that are open to visit, the top monuments, attractions and museums that you can visit and the best bottle shops in town. Our aim is to provide the perfect companion for any keen beer tourist during their stay.

Rotterdam is a bustling Dutch city, overseeing the largest shipping port in Europe. During your trip you'll find a fascinating mix of the old with the new, with historic buildings, stunning modern architecture, impressive museums and a lively night life. Being a strategic harbour during the Second World War much of the city centre was destroyed by heavy German bombing as they sought to quickly occupy the Netherlands. After the war the determined population employed architects to restore the city's former glory and as a result around the centre you'll discover striking modern architecture such as the Cube Houses, De Markthal and Erasmus Bridge. To the west of the centre you'll discover Rotterdam's medieval past in the harbour area known as Delfshaven. This picturesque marina was fortunate to escape the bombing and still contains many historic building. It also marks the location where in 1620 the Pilgrim Father's set sail on their voyage to settle in America.
