Lijnbaan: main shopping street of Rotterdam!

Lijnbaan is the main shopping area in Rotterdam. Lijnbaan was introduced in 1953 and those days it was the first modern shopping street in post-war Europe, where no cars were allowed to enter. Today, Lijnbaan is still car-free and it is still an excellent shopping area. On a rainy day, Lijnbaan Rotterdam is still comfortable, as it is partially covered. Lijnbaan is the beating heart of Rotterdam shopping with many large stores of international fashion chains. Shop till you drop at Lijnbaan Rotterdam!
