Art & Poetry route

The bombing of May 14, 1940 destroyed the center of Rotterdam, which created a blank canvas for artists. A chain of sculpures can be found throughout the city, each with their own story. With the new Art & Poetry route you will discover this story. Let ‘City Poet’ Hester Knibbe and artist Gyz La Rivière guide you, as you listen to the poems specially written for the most extraordinary sculptures, by poets from across the country.
