“Makes for a great view and training!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

I live very near to this bridge and always enjoy seeing it! My weekly run always involves both bridges in Rotterdam because the view is so nice and because they make for a good climb (it’s pretty steep! And nearly 800m). Especially during the evening when the sun has just set and its after colors are bright in the sky the view from the Erasmus is amazing!

“It's a Nice Bridge! Biking Path, Great View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

It's a Bridge!

That's designed beautifully! Fun to walk over and back over. Great to have as a landmark in the city. If you want to see a great bridge look no further.

If you are a fan of architecture, you cannot miss this bridge which identifies the city... Also known as The Swan, you'll love it!

“Beautyfull piece of architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Locals call it the Swan. 3 guesses why. The queen opened this bridge, renowned for its modern architecture and beauty. For me, I live almost next to it and love to see the sight of it each morning again. If you happen to visit Rotterdam, walk this way!

“Spectacular bridge over the river Maas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

The Maas is a wide and spectacular bridge in Rotterdam, and the Erasmus bridge is a great place to view in. Numerous trams cross the bridge and it is great fun going backwards and forwards on them.
