Explorer Alex visited the "Swanmarket" at the Westelijk Handelsterrein. Swanmarket is a platform for new creative entrepreneurs who want to show their products to the public. This manifests itself in a lifestyle market where you can find a very diverse offer.
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.
"This summer was my first year as a festival photographer in Rotterdam and it was a bloody good one! From culinary festivals to techno festivals, everything has passed my camera and I want to show you some of the pictures that really stood out for me this season."
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.
If you happen to pass by Round&Round, there’s no chance you won’t notice it. Its window is drawn on with a white marker and the big, beautiful mural painting they have inside is visible from the outside. And so our explorer Athena went in.
"I would like to show you around. Join me and open your eyes to Rotterdam's secrets found outside the city centre. I look for hospitality and warmth, eye for detail and texture. These are spread out across Rotterdam."
