Typically the Oude Binnenweg in Rotterdam, Netherland

Traveling in Rotterdam, Netherlands
The famous Cafe Timmer

In the past weeks I have been traveling back to my home country, to stay in contact with the old world and with my 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.

IJssalon Venezia (photo under) is under the family management of Anita Dall’ Asta en Giuseppe Olivo since 1964. And bookshop Van Gennep is already more as 40 years a place to go for book lovers.
