The Shopping Gutter or in Dutch Koopgoot is how the Rotterdamers call it. Official named Beurstraverse but there are not much locals who use that name. The Rotterdamers call it Koopgoot because it's one level beneath street level. A shop like Hema has it's basement entrence in the Koopgoot. The Koopgoot also connects shopping centre Beurs and the Hoogstraat with shopping centre Lijnbaan. Shoppers can enjoy easy a whole day shopping in the centre of Rotterdam. It goes roughly from the Market Hall to the Lijnbaan and from Weena to Binnenwegplein.
