These photos of Rotterdam and its sunsets will blow you away

At DutchReview, we have a real soft spot for the architecture of Rotterdam, pretty pics of it and glorious sunsets in general.

So when we stumbled upon these photos of Rotterdam and some of the most epic sunsets ever seen we just knew we had to get together with Anthony Malefijt and bring his work to you DutchReview-readers!

What makes these photos of Rotterdam so awesome?

It’s hard to say, but also easy at the same time. The cumulation of all the pretty urban design in Rotterdam all bunged together certainly provides the right setting. Having a fondness of the city and really focussing on all the different scenes there also helps. Or perhaps it’s because Rotterdam is so immensely different from the regular ‘cute’ Dutch cities. 

Anyways, a huge round of Dutch applause goes out to Anthony Malefijt for setting us up with these pics. Hit his accounts up and like/follow that Instagram or Facebook page is you like these awesomeballs photos of Rotterdam and its sunset.

Now as they say in Rotterdam: geen woorden maar daden

Let’s be rebels and start with that pic without a sunset. The iconic Hef – closed for traffic – just there now for being awesome. Image: Anthony Malefijt

Abuzer founded DutchReview a decade ago because he thought expats needed it and wanted to make amends for the Dutch cuisine. He has a Masters in Political Science and IT but somewhere always wanted to study history or good old football. He also a mortgage in the Netherlands and will happily tell you too how to get one. Born and raised in Rotterdam, Abuzer now lives in Leiden but is always longing back to his own international year in Italy.


  1. Beautiful photography. Many of the shots look like HDR was used. The camera/s used were they crop, full frame, or medium format? Just curious?

  2. […] Before we get to the good stuff, I’ll just have to tell you about all the nice stuff that’s going on at our Instagram. We’ve stepped our game up (thanks Ceren!) and found the best pics of Autumn in the Netherlands and shared those with you there. In this article you’ll see just a fraction of it and there are also some bangers there from fellas you already know such as Vincent Mullenders and his drone and Anthony Malefijt. […]
