Shopping tip, Keet Rotterdam. A great variety of really nice must haves!

Shopping tip,  Keet Rotterdam. a great variety of really nice must haves! Walking through the trendy and lively shopping street ‘de Meent’ caught my eye on a new shop in a side street, Keet. Just a quick inside, what a nice gadgets all! Mostly from novice entrepreneurs and designers, or websites which have no fixed points of sale.

Because of this concept there are all kinds of small shops in the warehouse, with a great variety of really nice must haves! Special Baby clothes, handmade leather bags, jewelry, clothing, home decor and accessories, hand-drawn design cards and posters, delicious caramels by a pastry chef. Take your time when visiting this shop.

In the coffee bar you can also enjoy of a tasty coffee, home-made smoothies, sandwiches, salads and cakes in a living room atmosphere. Keet is a must see when you are looking for a nice gift, or just want to buy yourself a nice accessory.

‘Rotterdam is a city you need to learn to love,’

‘Rotterdam is a city you need to learn to love,’ is what you often hear. It’s strange but true… We’ve lost our heart to this city. How come? So, Meanwhile now loves Rotterdam. But we also have a taste for other things like interesting gadgets, peculiar discoveries we make on the web, and remarkable and funny observations during travels at home and abroad. Moreover, we like to look back once in a while and write about the history of the Netherlands and Rotterdam in particular. Meanwhile writes for those who don’t know Rotterdam or don’t know it well: visitors from abroad or those staying in town for a while or just a few days. That’s why I’ve included practical things like medical care, public transport etc, be it quick and dirty, in this blog. One blog: all the info. Meanwhile strolls through town, discovers and notices things.

Museum Boijmans van Beuningen

A visit to Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is a journey through the history of art from the Middle Ages to the present day. Discover the museum’s world-class collection with masterpieces by Bosch, Bruegel, Van Eyck, Rubens, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Magritte and Dalí and be amazed by exquisite drawings and decorative arts including medieval pitchers and Golden Age glassware, furniture by Rietveld and contemporary design.

 

 Mad about Surrealism

Dali – Ernst – Margritte

Dalí, Ernst, Magritte, Miró… From the Collections of Roland Penrose, 

Edward James, Gabrielle Keiller and Ulla and Heiner Pietzsch

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen presents Mad About Surrealism, an unprecedented survey of the Surrealist movement with masterpieces from four famous European collections. The majority of the works have rarely or never been exhibited publicly and will disappear behind closed doors again at the end of May 2017.

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s spring 2017 exhibition explores the magical world of Surrealism. In partnership with renowned museums in Edinburgh and Hamburg, the museum is showing how artists such as Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, René Magritte and Joan Miró used their passion and imagination to subvert everyday reality. The more than 300 works in the exhibition are from four superb private collections, which have been brought together for the first time. This internationally travelling exhibition was developed in close collaboration with two renowned international art museums: the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh and the Hamburger Kunsthalle.

Chabot Museum Rotterdam

Museum for international Expressionism in one of Rotterdam’s most beautiful villas. The Chabot Museum has an important collection of works by Dutch expressionist Henk Chabot (1894-1949) and is housed in one of Rotterdam’s most beautiful villas. The peaceful homely atmosphere of this listed monument built in 1938 does perfect justice to Chabot’s paintings and sculptures and to works by his contemporaries and present-day kindred spirits. Expressionism and the inter-war period are central to the museum’s temporary exhibitions. The gardens surrounding the building and the other villas scattered around Museum Park are part of an oasis of green in the very centre of Rotterdam.

‘Hyperrealisme – 50 Years of Painting’

‘Hyperrealisme – 50 Years of Painting’, a unique overview of photorealistic painting. Three generations of American and European artists illustrate the history of this fascinating, figurative art movement. With this retrospective, which includes 70 works by more than 30 artists, the Kunsthal is bringing an unparalleled collection of hyperrealistic masterpieces to the Netherlands.

The work of these artists, including Chuck Close, Robert Bechtle, Richard Estes, John Salt and Franz Gertsch is painted in such minute detail and with such precision that they resemble photographs. The result, however, is more than a virtuoso copy of the subject, and the paintings create their own reality.

Easy bike rent

Ov Bike

The OV- Fiets (bike).  Discover Rotterdam by bike

Traveling from door to door

The train is a comfortable way to travel from station to station, but your final destination is often located some distance from the station. NS has thought of that as well. For example, you can rent an OV-fiets, store your own bicycle safely in an NS bicycle storage facility, take the bus, tram or metro or hop into an NS-Zonetaxi. Or if you would prefer to drive yourself, you can park your car at a Q-Park P+R or rent a Greenwheels car. As a business traveler, you can also work or hold a meeting at a Regus office near the station, so you do not have far to go for your next appointment. In short, you can choose the convenience that best suits your needs.

http://www.ns.nl/en/door-to-door

Using the OV-fiets

The OV-fiets is a quick and healthy way to reach your final destination. You can use your OV-fiets season ticket to rent up to 2 bicycles from nearly 300 locations. Locations include train stations, bus and metro stops, several town centres and P+R sites. You only have to pay € 3.85 per OV-fiets per 24 hour period. The bicycles are stored in both guarded and unguarded storage areas, or in self-service bicycle lockers or carousels. This way you always have access to a bicycle, and can continue your journey.
