Long Description:
The village of Overschie is located on the intersection of four rivers called "Schie": the Delftsche Schie, Schiedamsche Schie, Delfshavensche Schie, and Rotterdamsche Schie. It was a separate municipality between 1817 and 1941, when it merged with Rotterdam.[1] Immediately after the Second World War, the construction of a large suburb was begun southeast of the village.

"Overschie" is now also the name of a deelgemeente (borough) of the city of Rotterdam, covering the former village, the neighbourhood Overschie, airport Zestienhoven, and the countryside to the north including the hamlet Zweth.
