A pleasantly burning sun, ice-cold beer, softly flowing music and banter at just the right volume. This is an afternoon at Biergarten. Set right next to Rotterdam’s central station, this bar does exactly as its name suggests: serving beer in the open air. Yet beer is only half of it; Biergarten knows what else is important. The menu lists charcoal-grilled food, fresh salads, snacks, and more. Beer lovers can enjoy beer on tap and some 30 specialty beers, but Biergarten also has a heart for wine and cider. Want to take it easy? Do not leave without trying the lemonade. The house beer is Gulpener, a Dutch family brewery known for its organic beer and locally sourced produce.
