Shopping in Rotterdam is a must. Special concept stores, large department stores and surprising vintage shops are waiting for you here.
Whether you love unique vintage finds or luxury fashion brands, Rotterdam has something to offer for every shopping enthusiast.
Explore the Kruiskade and discover high-end shops such as Shoebaloo, Skins Cosmetics, Oger, Schaap en Citroen and Hugo Boss. Near the Kruiskade, towards Central Station, you have the covered Central Plaza, where you can shop at Coccinelle Fashion or Plaza Jewelers.
Towards the centre you pass the Lijnbaan and a little further the Koopgoot, both a must visit during a shopping day in Rotterdam. All kinds of popular retail chains are waiting for you here: Primark, Pull & Bear, Bershka, Urban Outfitters, Stradivarius, Lush and of course H&M and Zara. But let’s not forget shops such as KKEC and the Peanut Butter Shop, that you might not know yet. A nice bonus: the roof along the shops keeps you dry during rainy shopping days.
The Meent is perfect for some window shopping, thanks to the many beautiful boutiques. Don't forget the side streets, where you will come across true gems such as Keet Rotterdam, a cosy concept store full of unique items. And of course the MaHo quarter, which consists of the Pannekoekstraat, Botersloot and the Nieuwemarkt. When discovering this area, you will be rewarded every few meters with a new surprising shop.
Take a look at the Swap Shop on Rodezand, for example, where you can exchange clothes via a clever system. Or the ReShare Store on the Korte Hoogstraat, a second-hand clothing store of the Salvation Army, where you can hand in clothing or buy it at a competitive price.
