Since spring has officially started and the sun shines through the sky every now and then, the best way to enjoy a sunny day in Rotterdam is at a nice terrace with a cold drink.
You can find the most popular terraces at Oude Haven, Binnenrotte, Witte de With street and Stadhuisplein.
The terraces with the best view of Rotterdam are Hotel New York, NHOW (located at the biggest building in the Netherlands) and the Suicide Club. On a sunny day Hotel New York is always full but you can put your name on a waiting list until a table is ready.
Below we have listed some other restaurants that have a really nice terrace, where you can relax with some drinks:
On the deck of this steamship you can enjoy a part of the Rotterdam skyline and even cool your feet in the little pool.
Located next to Rotterdam Central you can find this unique terrace which is well-known for its beers, BBQ and live music.
Fenix Food Factory
If you like unique and locally brewed beers and bites, do not skip the Fenix Food Factory. They have all kinds of small dishes and a stunning view of the Maas and Hotel New York.
Partly located underneath the Erasmusbridge this terrace has a beautiful view over the river Maas.
They won the best terrace price in 2016. Located at the Meent you can hardly miss this place during your shopping tour.
