On September 15th, POW! WOW! Rotterdam will go down in the park on the Afrikaanderplein in Rotterdam. At least, our festival site is located there. Most street art can be found in the surrounding neighborhood, the Afrikaanderwijk.
How to get there?
We don’t want to force anybody, but the easiest way to travel to POW! WOW! Rotterdam is by public transport! From Rotterdam Central Station (NS) there are various options:
From Rotterdam Central Station (NS) and / or Rijnhaven (RET) metro station
Take RET Metro line D (towards De Akkers) or E (towards Slinge) and get off at Rijnhaven subway station. From there, the Afrikaanderplein is only a 9-minute walk. Cross the Hillelaan in the direction of the Brede Hilledijk but immediately cross it again in the direction of the sign that says “Welcome to De Afrikaanderwijk”. There is no warmer welcome. Cross the wall via the stairs and continue your way on the Hillelaan. Take a slight left turn onto Pretorialaan. Continue – go straight – until you reach a crossing and you will find the Afrikaanderpark on your left.
From Rotterdam-Zuid Station (train / NS)
It takes about 11 minutes to walk to the festival site on Afrikaanderplein from Rotterdam-Zuid station. Leave the station on the left side via the Rosebrug (bridge) and then walk straight in the direction of the Stoomtramweg. Once you have arrived at Spoorweghavenplein, cross the park diagonally and then cross Laan Op Zuid into Paul Krugerstraat. After approximately 250 meters you will find the Afrikaanderpark on your left.
From metro station Maashaven (Subway / RET)
From the Maashaven metro station it is approximately a 10-minute walk to the festival site on Afrikaanderplein. Walk from the exit in an easterly direction and cross the Maasthaven Oostzijden onto the Putselaan. After 450 meters, turn left at the roundabout into Pretorialaan. After 50 meters you will find the Afrikaanderpark on your right.
You can -of course- also come by car. We advise you to park your vehicle in one of the following parking garages; Boulevard Zuid parking garage, Colosseumweg parking garage, Laan Op Zuid parking garage. These parking garages are all located in the vicinity of the festival site in the Afrikaanderpark. Check the opening times yourself, please.
There is a free bike shed available near the entrance of our festival site, on the Afrikaanderplein!
