24 Reasons to visit ‘De Witte de Withstraat. Our favourite street. The best addresses.

24 Reasons to visit ‘De Witte de Withstraat.

Our favourite street. ‘The Witte de Withstraat’, just a short walk outside the busy shopping area.

Various architectural styles characterize this street. In the 1970’s a bad reputation because of bad cafes and gambling houses. In the 90 ’s the street underwent a metamorphosis. Currently, the street is the place to be, trendy bars, many restaurants, art galleries, and museums.

At evening the street is one large terrace. A street that you should definitely visit at your stay in Rotterdam. I have a lot of great addresses to visit:

(Witte de With Quarter: Schilderstraat – Schiedamsevest – Witte de Withstraat, Westersingel, Museumpark)

Museum Boijmans. Art with a big A, Frans Hals, Picasso and Salvador Dali.

It’s the combination of contemporary art and the old masters that intrigues me. Upon entering Boijmans van Beuningen, a world renowned museum, the first thing that attracts the eye is the modern, innovative wardrobe. The museum packed with millions of euro’s of art, is almost more famous for the way you can hang your coat. On weekdays it’s wonderful to walk around. Not to busy. So thats why I decided to make thursday museumday. It’s a little me time. There is this somewhat undefinable peace and quit in this place, which is wonderful while looking at Frans Hals, Picasso and Salvador Dali. Alongside the basic collection of art, Boijmans regurlarly organises new exhibitions. Like the original work of Salvador Dali. For more than two hours I walk around and order myself a cappucino at the bar looking out on the famous rose garden. Boijmans is art with a big A.

The Sonneveld House Museum. Time travel to the early 30s;

The Sonneveld House Museum in Rotterdam is one of the best-preserved houses in the Nieuwe Bouwen style, the Dutch branch of the International School of Modernism. It was designed in the early 1930s by the architecture firm of Brinkman & Van der Vlugt, also known for the Van Nelle Factory and Feyenoord Stadium. They were also responsible for the extraordinary interior, in close collaboration with W.H. Gispen. At the Sonneveld House Museum visitors can experience what it was like to live in a hypermodern home in 1933.
A striking aspect of the house is the way Brinkman and Van der Vlugt designed not only the architecture but also the complete interior. For the furnishings, they selected mainly furniture by the designer/manufacturer Gispen and fabrics by the firm Metz & Co. The Sonneveld House is probably the first example of an early modern interior where the products of these companies were applied consistently. The house was moreover equipped with the latest household gadgets to enhance the domestic pleasure of its inhabitants.

Museum Kunsthal Rotterdam. Its one big hall full of art.

De Kunsthal opened its doors in 1992. The building, by design of the famous Rem Koolhaas, is a 3300 square meters exposition area. The construction mixes wood, marble, steel and concrete. Not a square inch in the building is the same. The expositions vary. From James Bond to famous drawings, cartoonists or the great old painters. When ordering a drink, take a closer look at the bar. Its completely made out of one concrete construction. A museum freak? De Kunsthal is situated nearby Boijmans and the Natural History Museum. I always enjoy the parc after a visit and with good weather you can find me at the pond of the Rose garden. Who knows I might spot a rich handsome doktor of the Erasmus Mc.
