This area is one of the older regions of Rotterdam with many large family houses and more traditional apartments with preserved authentic details. The “Lusthofstraat” and ‘Oudedijk’ are the main shopping streets of Kralingen in which you can find all necessities such as a large supermarket, cafés, fish specialist, wine specialist and more. Kralingen is a calm and beautiful area close to the “Kralingse Bos” and “Kralingse Plas”, a large forest and lake which are perfectly suitable for sailing, running or walking with pets. The area is filled with students as well due to its close proximity to the Erasmus University. The area is also very close to the city center, easily accessible by bike or public transportation (within 10 minutes). Parking in this area is on the street with a parking permit. One of the oldest attractions in Kralingen is the Arboretum Trompenburg. In addition to the lovely old trees here, these botanic gardens offer beautiful plants and flowers and a charming teahouse. This area is very diverse and welcomes students, young adults, new families and families with older children. The district is very popular in demand. Looking for a new (temporary) home in Rotterdam?
