"Rotterdam's 5th Ave." Architecture, modern Tip by Nathalie_B

Architecture, modern, Rotterdam: 14 reviews and 26 photos


Favorite thing: If it has skyscrapers it must have 5th Avenue. People of Rotterdam like to give nicknames to their streets and buildings, therefore Lijnbaan shopping street is called 5th Avenue. First opened in 1953 it was the only car-free shopping street in Europe.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
