Delfshaven
If you really want to see how Rotterdam used to be, go to Delfshaven where it feels as if time has stood still. This is the place where sailor and folk hero Piet Hein was born in 1577, and where the pilgrim fathers set off in the 17th century for the long journey to the New World (the Americas). The Pilgrim Fathers Church is open to visitors on Friday and Saturday afternoons. Delfshaven has many cafรฉs and is a great place to spend the day hunting for antiques.
