Have you already visited the sparkling centre? Rotterdam is once again full of beautiful (Christmas) decorations this year, which creates a magical feeling.

There is plenty of splendor to admire: from beautifully decorated Christmas trees to the most beautiful garlands. Read on for an enchanting walking route through Rotterdam Centre.

Christmas vibes in the Koopgoot and on the Lijnbaan

Every year the city centre transforms into a winter paradise, thanks to the beautiful lights and decorations in the shopping streets. You can spot a mega-large Christmas tree in the Koopgoot and admire another one at the top of the Koopgoot. This year the large illuminated 'gift' has made way for the the Rotterdam marble track. The beautiful arches full of mood lighting in the Koopgoot once again decorate the shopping area, just like the rows of large Christmas baubles on both sides.

A nice addition this year is the giant Christmas card! With this card you can take the nicest selfies, which you can then have printed at HEMA.

Once you leave the Koopgoot, you walk along the Lijnbaan where you will see three kilometers of garlands with mood lighting and mega-large illuminated letters. A beautiful sight during the dark hours!

Enchanting Kruiskade and a sparkling Central Plaza

A visit to the atmospheric Kruiskade should not be missed. In addition to the luxurious Christmas atmosphere that you experience in the shops here, the street is decorated with sparkling lights and a beautiful Christmas tree.

From here, walk to Central Plaza, which has been transformed into a winter wonderland this year thanks to the thousands of lights on the outside, as well as the gigantic Christmas tree and light letters inside. Are you coming from Central Station? Then let Micky Mouse welcome you!
