The Swan Market is absolutely the most popular and coolest market from Rotterdam.
Clothing – new & vintage – furniture, paintings, jewellery, baby clothes, puzzles, comic books, food, just name it and it’s there.

From small to XXL

It all started in 2010, with a small version of the market in Rotterdam Nord having about 40 stalls. Within two years it became so popular that the organisation, two girls from Rotterdam, started with the XXL festival version in Museumpark. Nowadays, over 400 stalls are joining and it’s still growing. As there are so many different nice things to buy, you should definitely take care of your spending’s. Before you know your wallet is empty and a lot of new stuff will be taken home (You’ve been warned :).

Great atmosphere


The entree is free of charge and lots of people from all over the country visit the market that is held ten times a year. The atmosphere is always very good amongst the visitors, especially when the sun is shining. People sit at large picnic tables, chat with friends and family and enjoy the delicious freshly prepared food and drinks. Also, you will always find some local singing artists spreading their talents. So even if you don’t have plans to buy something, it’s nice to enjoy the great atmosphere.

Opening hours
Sunday from 12.00 pm till 5.00 am. Check the website for the next edition.
Sometimes it’s held somewhere else, so check their website carefully for up to date information
