Somewhere between the villages Bolnes and Slikkerveer in the municipality Ridderkerk you will find the national monument Huys ten Donck. Surrounded by an impressive garden in the British style, the estate is a beautiful place to visit. Explorer Alex discovered the area.
Rotterdam was extraordinary some weeks ago. The thick mist that clouded the harbour city wasn’t particularly pleasant for a lot of cyclists trying to fight through the moist air. But for explorer Jordy it was a dream come true.
Because of its rich past, the Hofbogen, officially the Hofpleinlijnviaduct, is one of Alex Bussenius's favourite spots in Rotterdam, a national monument and a location for exceptional entrepreneurs, coffee gurus and lovely restaurants.
Explorer Alex visited Katendrecht, better known as 'de Kaap.' With the beautiful SS Rotterdam and the Fenix Food Factory and all its' lovely restaurants, like de Matroos en het Meisje, Bistrot du Bac and Delibird, Katendrecht is definitely worth a visit.
