When you walk through the Delftsestraat you will certainly come across this artwork! There are conveniently placed supports so you can sit on the bike and then take a nice photo of a speed bike ride in Rotterdam!

When in Rotterdam you must visit the Zwaanshals. A street with all kinds of small shops and business and a special vibe! I took this picture of a mural, a real knock out picture!

Every time I pass this mural at metro station Stadhuis I want to take a picture of it, and that’s why you see the picture here! On the side of the Town Hall Square, a “graphic wall” has been placed between the staircase parties, designed by artist Bouke Ylstra. In concrete panels polished by the artist with his own hand, smoothly painted lines are filled with a deep black paint. They form two configurations that resemble shapes. The artwork was commissioned in December 1965.

Stadhuis metro station also had a number of shelters, to use during the Cold War, when danger threatened. Many of the shelters have been demolished, only the corridor from the Town Hall to the metro station is still there. This corridor made it easier for the city council to go to the shelters, without having to walk the streets.

I’m happy! After my visit at the dentist I’m free of visits for half a year! And how do I feel? Look at this mural wich can be found at the Van der Sluysstraat, very beautiful right? A wall painting with a giant drone. “It is an ode to nature and the insects that are threatened,” says artist Nina Valkhoff. Worth a visit!
