experience the city as a local
In commission of the city of Rotterdam we created the Rotterdam Routes app. It’s a walking trail app that lets you learn the city on a whole new level. You’ll be taking by hand of a real Rotterdam local who will tell you all the ins and outs of the city.
The app gives turn-by-turn navigation and leads you along the famous highlights and hidden gems that the city has to offer.
Each thematic route has his own audioguide, this allows you to walk the route while carrying your phone in your pocket. The app uses push-notifications based on your GPS location to keep you posted if you have to should or could take action at the available highlights. The text and route can be viewed on your phone whilst walking. The app supports multiple languages so you can experience everything in English as well as in Dutch.
The app contains five routes at launch, each with an own characteristic theme and an own local guide. Additional routes can be created by the City of Rotterdam with a special content management system that we created. Most routes will be 60 till 90 minutes in lenght to complete and you can jump in on any point on the route. The current routes are:
Go on a walk with Dore van Duivenbode and follow the green tail of the city center.
Erik Broekhuizen will lead you along spots that are connected to famous people from Rotterdam like Erasmus and boxer Bep van Klaveren.
Small bars, colorful streets, discover the real Rotterdam and the favorite spots of Ari Deelder.

De app can be downloaded for free on iOS and Android.
