The last remaining nook of old Rotterdam is the old port area, reconstructed to appear just as it was when originally built—an open-air museum with rows of gabled houses lining the historic waterfront, trendy galleries, cafés, and restaurants. Walk along the Voorhaven, Achterhaven, and neighboring Piet Heynplein and marvel at the many historic buildings. For historic sights in the environs, check out the working mill of Korenmolen de Distilleerketel (open Wednesday and Saturday only), the fascinating Museum de Dubbelde Palmboom on Rotterdam city history, and the Oudekerk/Pilgrimvaders Kerk. Tram No. 4 connects Delfshaven with the rest of the city, as does the nearby Delfshaven metro station.
