The Celsiusstraat is a side street of the Weimarstraat, with a wide range of specialty shops, larger chains and various catering establishments.
Weimarstraat is also a shopping street where activities are often organized, such as local markets and fairs.
A street festival is organized in both spring and summer, combining a Home Made Market, a Food Truck Festival and a child-free market.
The Valkenboskwartier, located in the former Mientpolder, owes its name to the former country estate Valkenbosch at the intersection of the Valkenboskade and the Mient. The country estate was demolished in 1857.
The urban development is in fact a continuation of the urban design of Regentessekwartier largely based on the street plan of ir. I.A. Lindo. A large number of streets that lead from the Regentessekwartier to the Beeklaan continue in the Valkenboskwartier. Due to the comparable urban design, the continuation of the street pattern and the built-up image, both neighborhoods almost merge.
The area enclosed by the Weimarstraat, Valkenboskade, Laan van Meerdervoort and Fahrenheitstraat, which was created as the last part between ca. 1910-1915, is part of Lindo’s expansion plan from 1903 and taken over by Berlage (1908).
The Weimarstraat quickly acquired an important shopping function, which was further strengthened in the course of the 20th century. In Beeklaan, Edisonstraat, Copernicusstraat and to a lesser extent Laan van Meerdervoort and Valkenboskade, the original residential function has been partly replaced by non-residential functions such as retail, services and catering.
