Multicultural and historical

Delfshaven is an exciting place to rent a room! It’s a multicultural neighbourhood with a wonderful historical atmosphere. Her, you can find eateries with food from all corners of the earth, and the district is located directly on the old harbour basins along the Maas.

Delfshaven is known for its tremendous variety of cultures and sights: from stately townhouses to exotic streets with small Moroccan restaurants and Turkish bakeries.

Stadswonen Rotterdam offers units in and around Coolhaveneiland - a great district that is home to all kinds of creative enterprises as well as the very popular Historical Delfshaven neighbourhood. Delfshaven is the only part of the pre-war city centre that survived the Rotterdam Blitz of 1940. Here, you can still feel the authentic atmosphere of old Rotterdam.

You can find various educational institutions in the Delfshaven area, including a number of locations of Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences.
