For the art lovers

Depot Boijmans van Beuningen

Depot Boijmans is the ultimate spot to take your perfect Instagram photos! An 8-minute walk from It's a present you will see the immense building of mirrors. Here you can see the entire skyline of Rotterdam, especially during the sunset this is beautiful.

The museum contains more than 151,000 collected works of art that they have collected over a period of 172 years. The Depot is open to the public inside, since November 6, 2021 you can view the building indoors! No time to go inside? Don't worry! From the outside, the building is also amazing and still Instagram worthy ;)

Museumpark 24, 3015 CX Rotterdam

Did you know that around the corner from the Depot you can be in the Kunsthal within 2 seconds. The museum is full of modern art, highly recommended!

Museum Park, Westzeedijk 341, 3015 AA Rotterdam

House Sonneveld

At first, many people walk past Huis Sonneveld and do not realize how special this house actually is. But the house is one of the best preserved houses in the style of Het Nieuwe Bouwen. You can see this especially well from the inside!

The house was built between 1932 and 1933 by architect Leendert van der Vlugt on behalf of AH Sonneveld. If you are in the vicinity of Huis Sonneveld, a visit is definitely worth it!

Jongkindstraat 12, 3015 CG Rotterdam

Street art

You can't miss the Street art in the Witte de With! Our neighborhood is known for its wonderful art, which gives our street its unique atmosphere. The street art is not only fun to look at, but also perfect for your Instagram shots and Tiktoks!

You will be especially amazed at the amount of art when you also take in the alleys!

Tasty snack

Warung Mini

Looking for a nice budget restaurant? We have to say that Warung Mini is not the trendiest place, but at Warung Mini you eat the tastiest dishes for a small price! You wouldn't say it, but you pay an average of around 13 euros for a meal. Our favorite is Soato soup, Warung Mini is also well known for this among the Rotterdammers! But not to forget the vegetarians, the Vega Roti Roll is also highly recommended. Can you use a tasty bite after shopping? Then this eatery is only a few minutes' walk from It's a present. And then you have a delicious meal for a top price!

Witte de Withstraat 47, 3012 BM Rotterdam


A quick bite after going out or shopping? This tent is perfect for you, because they are known for the best hair salons in the area. Aren't you crazy about hair salon? No worries! Then they have many more goodies at Jaffa. Even if you want to go for a picnic somewhere, this is a perfect place to pick up food and then enjoy it in the park.

The hippest dinner spots

Ter Marsh & Co

Eat the tastiest burgers in town at Ter Marsch & Co! For a nice lunch, between all the culture and shopping, this is the place to be. The restaurant finds quality meat from the region very important and you can certainly taste it!

They have been on Witte de Withstraat since 1890. At the time it was called "Factory of the Preserved Meats", super hip for that time! So definitely worth a visit if you fancy a delicious burger with artisan fries. A nice tip from us, The Gojira burger!

Witte de Withstraat 70, 3012 BS Rotterdam

Super Mercado

Are you not averse to a delicious cocktail? Then you are in the right place with this Latin American kitchen. After work we prefer to drink a nice cocktail here, not too much of course ;)! They have a lot of choice here, from Argentinian ribeye to Mexican tacos. This restaurant gives you a real street food vibe, but the little kids can also enjoy themselves here in the 'Mini Mercado'. So all hip parents pay attention ;)!

French fries boutique 

You can't miss this cute and atmospheric tent! Order a generous portion of fries with delicious truffle mayonnaise, and then enjoy them on their terrace. In addition to being very tasty, the fries shop is also very sustainable. The fries come directly from the farmer, so that the tasty skin can remain on the potato. The menu also includes various meat, vegetarian and even vegan snacks!

Witte de Withstraat 68A, 3012 BS Rotterdam

Shop till you drop


Are gemstones, tarot cards and incense sticks right for you? Then Mystiek is your dream shop! The store is unique and cosy, when you walk in it immediately feels like you are being welcomed in a warm bath. Relax and drink a cup of tea or coffee in their atmospheric Petit-Cafe while you can ask the employees for advice. At the spiritual store you will find the most beautiful stones, books, statues, yoga and meditation products. The store is next to us, so very close!

Danny the Cactus

If you don't succeed with us, Danny the Cactus has plenty of colorful presents! With all the fun of Danny himself in the store, you will not get bored easily in this store. The front of the store alone radiates a lot of cheerfulness. Especially for people who love spiritual things, this store is a golden tip!

Schilderstraat 63A, 3011 ER Rotterdam

Sweet Rebels

Episode, a few shops away, is of course great for the vintage lovers among us. But don't forget to visit Sweet Rebels! This vintage store sells unique items and the wall drawings are certainly worth a visit. Not only you but also the environment will be happy with your vintage purchase!

Craving for chocolate/ice cream

Florence Chocolates

Secretly we would like to eat chocolates all day long at these neighbors, but there is also work to be done! ;) Have the holidays started again? Or do you want to let a friend, family member or acquaintance know that you are thinking of them? Or that you love them? Actually, the chocolates from this shop suit almost every occasion!

Witte de Withstraat 9a, 3012 BK Rotterdam

The ice maker

This trendy ice cream shop has many different flavors of ice cream! But we are the biggest fan of the flavor caramel sea salt. This shop is not as old-fashioned as most ice cream shops, on the contrary! When you walk into the store, you quickly notice that there are order boards, where you can enter your order at any time. And even the interior looks hip and unique!

Another advantage; the shop is open until late. So if you like Spanish times for dinner, you still have your dessert!
