There are plenty of cheese shops in Rotterdam. Which is probably no surprise to you, as we Dutchies love cheese! On our bread, over our pasta, melted as a fondue, as a snack – in all shapes, sizes, colors and scents.
An evening drink is therefore not possible without a cheese platter, with, for example, a piece of brie, Manchego, creamy goat cheese or Camembert. Simply delicious. But of course we want those cheeses to be of the best quality. That’s why we go to the cheese shop. They not only have a wide range of options, the people working there can also help you select whichever cheese you like most.
Read below which cheese shops in Rotterdam you should visit for a good slice of cheese. Enjoy!
1. De Kaashoeve
This cheese shop in the center of Rotterdam can’t be missed, as there is a life-size statue of a cow in front of the door! Furthermore, the store looks like you would expect a cheese store to look like. It is therefore the perfect place for good artisan cheese, selected for taste, quality and originality. And luckily they don’t mind it at all if you taste it first.
This nice cheese shop on the Oude Binnenweg in Rotterdam can give you good advice on which cheeses go with which wines, fruits or bread and they regularly offer new cheeses. Ideal for cheese lovers who like to try new things!

2. Alexanderhoeve Kaas & Noten
Over the past 100 years, this cheese business has grown into a large chain, with locations across the country. In Rotterdam you can find three Alexanderhoeve cheese shops: on the Lusthofstraat, the Binnenhof and Keizerswaard.
Over the years, Alexanderhoeve has won several awards. It is therefore a place where quality comes first, for both Dutch and foreign cheeses. You can also buy tasty nuts and wines here that go well with the cheeses.

3. Booij Kaasmakers
Booij Kaasmakers in the Fenix Food Factory is not only a good place to get your hands on some tasty cheeses, you can also book a cheese tasting here. How cool is that? You can choose from one of their three cheese tastings or go for the cheese combination tastings, such as a beer & cheese tasting, wine & cheese tasting or a cider & cheese tasting.
Would you rather just buy cheese? That is of course also possible. You can get their homemade cheeses in the store or order them online.
