An off the beaten path interactive audio tour for people that understand Dutch. The website lets you download a map and about 200 small MP3 files that explain everything about the downtown neighbourhood Afrikaanderwijk. Known for it's multicultural population, recent renovations, the interaction between people from Turkey, Morocco, Cape Verde.... discover hidden mosques for the Turks or the Pakistani, a Hindu temple. Discover city life and the complexities of such a neighbourhood, what the city government offers, and much more. The audio tour is hosted by Farid Boukakar, a Moroccan guy who grew up in the neighbourhood.
Have a look here for an interactive map.
You can also walk the route with a handheld PDA with GPS. For that you need to contact Rotterdam Roots, ticket information below, on working days between 9-17.30 hrs.
The starting point is the library at Afrikaanderwijk, address: Bibliotheek Afrikaanderwijk, Paul Krugerstraat 61, Rotterdam (see photo 4). Daily, except Sundays, Tuesdays and 25/26 December.
I walked the free version with an MP3 player, which took about 3 hours and had great fun.
Enjoy the following tips.
