In the early hours of today when on my way to work I found this lonely rose on the pavement. Somebody didn’t like the romantic gesture or?

A bar restaurant nearby has a terrace/garden spot made up of containers and on one of them a wishful thinking text! Sometimes it is, sometimes its not 🙂

It took a while but it seems that I can pick up my evening strolls! An short walk took me passing the Markthal with the neon tiger, the symbol of the International Film Festival Rotterdam. Don’t be afraid, just watch!

On the corner of Coolsingel – Aert van Nesstraat, the luxury hotel Atlanta is located above the shops there. The hotel was built between 1929 and 1931 to a design by the Hague architect Frans van der Togt in the Art Deco style and officially opened its doors on May 2, 1931. When it was completed in 1931, the hotel contained a double-height café-restaurant. on the ground floor where the shops are now. During the bombing of Rotterdam on 14 May 1940, Hotel Atlanta passed through almost unscathed. My grandfather lived in the streets behind the building before WWII. In the summer when the windows and doors were open because of the heat he could here the music of the orchestra in the restaurant/club. It has been a municipal monument since 1998.

Finally a new picture on the blog! One of the new streetlights on the Coolsingel. This mainstreet had a total makeover. A car lane has been removed and there is much more space for cyclists and pedestrians. In addition, these new street lamps have been installed. A bit 1930s style and of course energy efficient 🙂

Cloudy friday, but its weekend, the city is waiting

Sundays walk are the best! No hurry, nice weather and everybody seems to be more friendly. So I did a nice stroll through the city to the river and walking onto the Willemsplein I noted the museum streetcars or trams. These trams, line number 15, make a tour through the center of Rotterdam with of course an explanation of all the interesting things to see along the way. Nice cars, nice people, recommended!
