It’s no surprise that this was the sailors’ favourite neighbourhood for on-shore fun. Nowadays, this is one of the hippest locations in town.
“Discover the infamous history of Katendrecht with a walk that starts at Hotel New York and ends at SS Rotterdam at De Kaap.”
To discover the infamous history of ‘De Kaap’, Hotel New York and SS Rotterdam developed a walking route. This route takes you by the most interesting locations, such as the Deliplein that once had more than 60 port pubs. Also stop at the bronze ‘Ketelbinkie’; this statue is a tribute to the former jack-of-all-trades on the ship. The end of the route is SS Rotterdam, the cruise ship that sailed between Rotterdam and Manhattan in the ‘60s. This ship is now the crowning jewel in the port of Katendrecht.
