Hoogstraat Rotterdam: great shopping street!

Hoogstraat Rotterdam (means High street) is a kind of messy, but one of the main shopping streets in Rotterdam city centre. Hoogstraat connects the Koopgoot shopping street with the Binnenrotte, where Rotterdam’s biggest market and the huge Rotterdam Market Hall are located.

Shopping at Rotterdam Hoogstraat

The Hoogstraat shopping tour starts at the big market square called Binnenrotte, close to Blaak railway station. Next to Rotterdam’s library you can drink Rotterdam’s award winning cup of coffee at Bagels and Beans (Hoogstraat 129b). You have to cross the Rotterdam market square and keep the Market Hall of Rotterdam on your left hand side. A little bit futher down Hoogstraat Rotterdam you will find a number of jewellers and tasty Surinamese sandwiches at Chinny. Opposite to Chinny (next to drugstore Kruidvat) you can walk to the Grotekerkplein to the Kids Marina, a nice attraction for kids during shopping in Rotterdam! If you are looking for body care and health products have a look at Sabon (Hoogstraat 197). Buy a package of typical Dutch sugar waffles at Markus’ Booth at Hoogstraat. Sport2000 has a huge collection of Adidas sneakers (Hoogstraat 181). Visit department store Hudsons Bay not only for their wide variety of goods but also for their roof top terrace La Place that offers a good lunch with a nice view on the city center (Hoogstraat 185). In the same building you can find Saks Off 5th, the American outlet store of Saks 5th Avenue, with more than 700 designer brands and discounts till 70%. Hoogstraat leads to Beursplein, but first you van make a small shopping detour to Korte Hoogstraat and Rodezand.
