Coolsingel boulevard and the Town Hall

Add to my trip(0)

Overview

The Coolsingel is the boulevard of Rotterdam, located in the Cool district. The street was recently renovated, mainly to improve traffic congestion and to serve pedestrians and bikes better. The new design gives the Coolsingel its appearance and allure back. Coolsingel is one of the best-known streets in central Rotterdam, stretching from the Hofplein to the Churchillplein.

The main attraction of Coolsingel is the Town Hall (Stadhuis). The building construction was completed in 1920, designed with a beautiful Duch Renaissance style. It’s somehow survived the WWII bombing. In order to see the well-decorated interior, you must book a guided tour through the city’s tourist office.

Best Time To Visit

Rotterdam weather is oceanic. You can expect rainy days all year long. However, the temperature rarely reaches extreme levels. The best time to visit Rotterdam is in the spring and summer since there’ll probably be fewer rainy days, with pleasant weather. The hottest month is August and the coldest month is January.

quick tipRemember to check the weather forecast a few days before the trip and before heading to the airport.

Rain could catch you all year long so make sure, even in the summer, to pack a light jacket that can also protect you from unexpected rain.

You can find amazing jackets for men, women, and kids on Amazon (I haven’t personally tested these ones).
