NR. 6 Katendrecht and SS Rotterdam

Where Katendrecht used to be the red light district of Rotterdam, it is now one of the city's trendiest neighborhoods. The peninsula, known by Rotterdam as the Cape, has become a paradise for burgundians. 

Much of it is due to the Fenix ​​Food Factory in one of the old fenix sheds. Passionate craftsmen gather here to prepare their products honestly. In this covered fresh market, your senses are stimulated from all sides. You can find out about this on our site more .


The absolute heart of the Cape is Deliplein. There it is bursting with nice restaurants and bars such as Vislokaal Kaap and Delibird. Eat what's on offer at De Matroos en het Girl or let the carnivore in you emerge at CEO Baas van het Vlees. Moreover, there is a very nice theater on the Deliplein: Theater Walhalla. Comedians, tart singers, youth theater… there is everything, and it is often delicious Rotterdam.

In any case, the Cape dwellers like to rave about the maritime and reddish past of their peninsula. That is best seen during the De Nacht van de Kaap festival in September. Folk singers sing an audience dressed as sailors and girls of light morals. Tickets are always sold out months in advance, so if you want to visit it once, you have to be quick.

Did you know…

The ss Rotterdam is located at the head of Katendrecht? The old steamship of the Holland-America Line used to sail between Rotterdam and New York. For many Rotterdammers, the ship is a symbol of the proud port history of the city. Nowadays you can eat there, stay overnight and follow a tour. On the deck you can drink at the pool with an excellent view over the river and the city. The interior of the ship breathes the grandeur of the 50 years, and is definitely worth a visit or a guided tour.
