Where the civil servants roam

The city hall of Rotterdam has the most charming of patios, with lush roses, palm trees, benches to chill on and even a fountain into the bargain. Whenever I am in the area, I walk through this hidden garden just to make sure its still there. And every now and then I take a few minutes to sit back in this urban piece of paradise and just enjoy the quiet, right in the heart of the hustle and bustle of the big city. Every Rotterdammer has been in the city hall. Almost none of them knows what they’re missing just 20 steps from the entrance. But I do. And now you know, too. However, with knowledge comes responsibility, so please take good care of this charming spot.

As of recently, I write about my favourite spots in Rotterdam, like this one, for Spotted by Locals, a mobile and online city guide with up-to-date tips by locals in 43 cities in Europe. Check it out!
