AT LOCAL LORENZO'S MULTI-CULTURAL HOTSPOTS, LIFE IN KATENDRECHT IS THE BIGGEST ATTRACTION

Lornzo Elstak (33), Social & Creative Entrepreneur, initiator of Stichting IK BEN WIJ, Stichting Platform Katendrecht and owner of dance entertainment company Pure-Amusement.

Born and raised: In Katendrecht, which makes him a real ‘Kapenees’.

Why: You come to Katendrecht for the people; super straightforward, typically Rotterdam and totally Kapenees… It’s the people that make the city, right!

Motto: I always say… ‘celebrate the differences, make the most of the similarities.’

Why should I cycle all the way to Katendrecht?

Question 1 of 5

You have to come to Katendrecht for the route alone, via the Maastunnel or via – my favourite option – the Erasmus Bridge. Either way, you defy the Maas River, which is an eye-catcher in itself. When you enter Katendrecht, you are welcomed by the industrial vibes of attention-grabbers with a historical story, such as the old freight train track, the Fenix ​​and the Codrico building, where grain used to be stored. What you find next makes the journey more than worthwhile; quite unexpectedly, the beautiful SS Rotterdam is moored here. Enjoy lunch, a drink and a paddle in the pool on the deck. Cool manager too!
