Shopping in Rotterdam, the “Beurstraverse or Koopgoot” is high-tech architecture

Rotterdam is clearly moving forwards with the “Beurstraverse”or the “Koopgoot” in its pursuit for modern buildings and architecture. This originality intended metro station is now a modern shopping centre. The style with many glass elements and water displays attracts customers to the shops on sub terrain level. There are so many stores but the most attractive for us are: C&A, D-Reizen, Esprit, Etos, H&M, Hema, Hunkemöller, Lacoste, Leonidas, Swarovski, V&D, Yves Rocher and Zara. If you want to eat something there is a McDonalds or several snack sellers on the street. Rotterdam will continue to build modern shopping facilities such as the “Markthal” which is expected to be ready mid 2014 and is a super prestige project for the city.

Met de “Beurstraverse”of de “Koopgoot” profileert Rotterdam zich duidelijk als een stad met ambitie voor moderne architectuur. DeBeurstraversewas oorspronkelijk gebouwd als een metro station, maar is nu een winkelcentrum. De vele elementen in glas en fonteinen trekken bezoekers naar de winkels op het beneden verdiep. Er zijn zeer veel zaken maar de meest interessante voor ons zijn: C&A, D-Reizen, Esprit, Etos, H&M, Hema, Hunkemöller, Lacoste, Leonidas, Swarovski, V&D, Yves Rocher en Zara. Als je iets wil eten is er een McDonalds of verschillende straatventers met snacks. Rotterdam gaat verder met de moderne uitbouw van de stad zoals deMarkthal, een prestige project waarschijnlijk klaar is van midden 2014..

  6. Looks like an interesting place.

    The boat in my photo is a sailing boat. That's why I said regarding the fisherman on the rocks "Or perhaps he was praying for a sailboat" :)

  9. you are so right, the design of the passage is very creative and lovely! I am a big fan of it myself...the only problem it that it gets sometimes too crowded (as often in NL;-)
