SURROUNDINGS

The ship is moored in the harbour of the former Rotterdam water company, right next to its monumental watertower. The area is called De Esch, Rotterdam Kralingen. At walking distance (2 minutes) there is a shopping centre with a supermarket, cafe Tomtom and restaurant De Watertoren (in the watertower).

The tram to the city centre stops very nearbij. You can also take a (very fast) Watertaxi to the city centre, it stops next to the ship.  Also in the area nearby are Erasmus University, business centre Rivium, Arboretum Trompenburg and a nature walking path along the New Meuse.

The area De Esch used to be the location where water from the Meuse was filtered and purified for drinking. Around the old industrial buildings a modern residential area was built. However, the 19th century water basins and buildings are still present.
