Rotterdam Rijnhaven District

Directly opposite the popular Wilhelminapier, the bustling Rotterdam Rijnhaven District is being developed: a beautiful extension of the inner city with international allure where a luxurious range of new apartments (i.a. Bay House), shops hotels (i.a. MGallery Hotel Collection) and restaurants are added to the city.


A real design avenue will be realized in the Rotterdam Rijnhaven District. An attractive, creative neighborhood with a shopping area that is completely focused on international fashion, design, art and architecture. The monumental Santos coffee warehouse is being restored and given a shopping destination; the German design department store Stilwerk will establish itself here.

The prestigious range of fashion & design will be a reason for many people inside and outside Rotterdam to visit the Rotterdam Rijnhaven District. Premium brands are alternated with the new Jumbo food market, a sandwich shop, butcher, espresso bar, pastry shop, flower shop and delicacies stores.

High-quality catering establishments are created on the Rijnhavenkade with various terraces, greenery and varied paving. The unique mix of culture, design and creativity will be enhanced by art galleries and museums.
