Erasmus Bridge, Rotterdam

4.4
With a shape often compared to a swan or a harp, Erasmus Bridge reflects the industrial yet creative character of the city. It stands 139 m (456 ft) tall and 802 m (2,631 ft) long above the Nieuwe Maas River, and connects the north and south sides of the city. Featured in Hollywood movies and seen in the Tour de France, the asymmetrical bridge is an icon of Rotterdam. You can cross by car or bus, or on foot or by bicycle. Stop along the way to observe the panorama of this flat city, dotted with some bulky industrial buildings.

  • ... Literally and figuratively a graceful and elegant bridge. Especially the high skyscrapers in the background and the brilliance of the Sun on the Meuse contribute to the beauty of this bridge. I pressing if you are waiting with the bike while it is "in operation".
