Welcome to the Koopgoot Rotterdam!
The Koopgoot, which is the generally accepted nickname of what was officially named Beurstraverse and roughly translates as ‘Shopping Gutter’, has been the main shopping centre in the heart of Rotterdam for 20 years. Apart from this, it is an architectural masterpiece that has won many awards. Particularly inviting to relax and take in all the impressions are the chairs that were especially designed for the Koopgoot by Maarten Baas.
Have fun by the surprise fountains, or take a selfie on our XXL iPads. Visit Europe’s largest H&M, or stop at the world’s most remarkable gift shop. Walk down the large stairs and be ready for a surprise!
A variety of events are hosted here throughout the year. Culinary delights are served during the Kookgoot (Cooking Gutter) event late in May, for instance. From July until September, the weekends are filled with local festivals featuring music, comedy, street theatre and spectacular shows, and during the holiday season, the Koopgoot transforms into a magical winter wonderland.
See you in the Koopgoot!
