Cupid is around the corner! 14 February is the day when people show their love and affection, most of the times with presents, flowers or chocolate. Restaurants are crowded and stores sell valentine’s gifts. We will give some tips and tricks to make this day a special day for you and your loved ones.

Love Forever

Some couples immortalize their love for each other with a (matching) tattoo. Popular is the name of the partner, the date when they first met or a matching heart and arrow with the initials.
Valentine’s Day is a popular day to propose, especially after a romantic dinner at candlelight and some nice music.

Valentine’s Dinner Cruise

Spido offers a special late-night cruise on the Maas. During a boat tour through Rotterdam, you and your partner can enjoy a 3-course dinner and listen to live acoustic music. To make your evening even more pleasant, a delicious selection of wines are included with the dinner.

Married for one day

On the 9th of February, you can get married for one day at the Markthal. It’s like a real wedding, but without the official rules. Access is free and signing up is not necessary.

Outside the Markthal, you and your love can place a lock on the ‘Love Fence’. Engrave, or write your names on a lock and, for example, the date on which you met.

In the Markthal, there are restaurants and bars where you can wine and dine with your valentine. Some of the restaurants offer a special Valentine’s Dinner to mark this special day.
