On your way to a tropical destination? No need for that anymore! You’re invited to visit the Rotte PICNIC ISLAND in the Dutch city Rotterdam. We have the perfect getaway place for you. This brand new pop-up island brings you a unique way to experience the river. We bring you a place in the middle of the river where you can sip your drink and relax with live-music. Needless to say that you can join us with your own boat or you take the small ferry to get there. Once you’re on the island it’s all about relaxation. Have a picnic with family and friends or just chill in one of the hammocks. Get yourself a coffee or a sparkling wine. Why not? Local bartender hero ‘El Ron de Rotterdam’ will serve you your perfect holiday drink.
This island is for all-ages. Concerts of local singer-songwriters and DJ Beauty Kees will make you dream away. Children can participate in the fishing contest or go with their parents in one of the electrical rental boats. Did you forget your picnic basket? No worries, you can get it at the local food market next-door called ‘Rotterdamse Oogstmarkt’.
The river Rotte is the reason why Hollands second city got her name: Rotterdam! After building a dam in this river almost 700 years ago, the Dutch developed this city into a world port and hotspot for everyone who’s into architecture, design and modern art. The location of this new hot spot Rotte PICNIC ISLAND is in the alternative and hip old northern part of the city. This part, called ‘Oude Noorden’ in Dutch, is an exciting multicultural neighbourhood, countless vintage shops, design stores and trendy restaurants. The bustling neighbourhood and the ambience of a faraway holiday make this island the place to be. Pack your bags and experience the Dutch hospitality or ‘gezelligheid’.
