Situated in the middle of the river Maas and in a unique location, the neighbourhood of Noordereiland is often overlooked. Noordereiland is connected both to the city centre via Willemsbrug and to Rotterdam Zuid via De Hef.
Unique, waterbound and quiet
Both of the Willemsbrug and De Hef bridges are rather impressive architectural works. Noordereiland remained largely unaffected by the bombing of 1940, so this lovely area features some older architecture. No matter which direction you look, you will find some amazing views. Please be aware that the public transport options to and from the island are still a bit limited and not ideal for a daily commute (at least compared to the rest of the city). Housing prices are also more on the expensive side. There are two supermarkets on the Noordereiland. One hidden ‘benefit’ of living on Noordereiland, is that parking is still free on the island. The neighborhood is very popular with creative, young entrepreneurs and residents. The nickname for Noordereiland is Montmartre on the Maas. You will find stately, old buildings with courtyards and views over the water on all sides. The Coolsingel and Central station are right within reach with only a short 10 minute bike ride. The Markthal, the Oude Haven, the market and the Luxor Theatre, among others, are within walking distance. Looking for a new (temporary) home around the city center of Rotterdam?
