The Waterstad is the area of the City around the Erasmus Bridge that encompasses residential, commercial and industrial architecture. Most walking tours around Rotterdam will direct you through part of this area. If you come to Rotterdam, you have to check out the Waterstad and appreciate the cosmopolitan culture of this coastal and riverside city.
