Book Fair Rotterdam
The Rotterdam Book Fair
The Book Fair in Rotterdam (Boekenfestijn) is a four-day exhibition of books, multimedia and hobby items. At this fair you will find miles of tables on which over a million (!) book titles, multimedia and hobby items are displayed. All titles are offered at a discount of at least 60%. Boekenfestijn is a touring book fair, that also takes places in other Dutch and Belgian cities.
All books at a bargain
Books are for sale in many different categories, for example novels in Dutch and English, fairy tales, children's books, travel guides, cookbooks, books on wildlife, film, music, art, history, computers and even comics. All books are displayed by category to make searching easier. If you need assistance finding a book, you can also contact the information desk for a search on author, title, keyword or ISBN number. Most of the book titles offered at the Rotterdam book fair are imported, slightly damaged or last in a serie and are thus offered at dumping prices from 2 to 5 Euro.
Multimedia and hobby items
In the multimedia section you can find DVDs, music CDs, but also software for Windows and Apple computers. There is a separate section with hobby items such as stationery, scrapbooks, post cards and kits.
The Book Festival is worth a visit, especially as the admission is absolutely free!
