Do you want to act like a real ‘Rotterdammer’? Then rent a bike and discover the city by bicycle. We have bicycle paths everywhere, so you don’t need to worry about your safety.

Discover the hotspot by bicycle



The city of Rotterdam is not that big, so that’s why renting a bicycle is a good solution for moving around. If you decide to discover Rotterdam by bicycle, first take a good map and then point out the streets or spots that you would like to visit. There are a lot of nice places that you could go to. Want some ideas? The streets and neighbourhoods that you may not miss are Zwart-Jan street (Rotterdam Noord), here you find many different shops. The audience is a mishmash of nationalities, typically Rotterdam. You might also like the Pannekoekstraat (Pancake street) and Meentin the center of the city. These streets are well known streets and very cosy. For typical old Dutch attractions you must go to Delfshaven. Time for a drink? Take a break at café Ooievaarin the old part of Delfshaven. From there you easily drive to Nieuwe Binnenweg where you find all kind of nice gifts and special clothes shops. Do you still have some energy left? Then go to Scheepvaartkwartier. This is a beautiful spot at Rotterdam close to the Maas with old historical buildings, a small harbour and not to forget a beautiful park. Enjoy your ride! 


Rent a bicycle



At some hotels, like Pincoffs, you can rent a bike but it’s also possible to rent a bike at Fietspoint Rotterdam, near the Central Station. I advice to make a reservation before you arrive in Rotterdam and be aware that they ask for a guarantee for the bike.
