Typically the Oude Binnenweg in Rotterdam, Netherland

Traveling in Rotterdam, Netherlands
The famous Cafe Timmer

During my 2019 trip to the Netherlands, to stay in contact with the old world, family and friends. It was cold and sometimes wet weather, but I survived. I did walk a lot in Rotterdam. While walking over the Oude Binneweg in Rotterdam (Netherlands) I noticed that a few of the old shops are still alive and kicking. So following are some photos of the Oude Binnenweg in Rotterdam. Like Cafe Timmer (photo above) in a house build in 1870 and a cafe (tapperij) since 1875.

Fikkie, another famous Rotterdamer.

Fikkie (photo above) is a citizen of Rotterdam since 1993 and after running all over Rotterdam he ended here at the Oude Binnenweg. Fikkie is made by Joeki Sumak from Budapest. Another old face of the Oude Binnenweg is De Spijkermand (photo below), that opened its doors in 1928.
