“Panoramic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Definitely nice place to have amazing panoramic view over Rotterdam, to enjoy nice wine, good atmosphere and nice food. Suitable for romantic dinners. Good service and nice food. Enough to enjoy the evening but definitely not the food to refer to after one year of having it.

“Symbol of a cool city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I spent two days on business visiting the Erasmus University. I am really glad that I stayed another day in Rotterdam. It is actually a fascinating city with that lovely white bridge as a main symbol. It does have some other cool architecture too. The Erasmus Bridge is not big but makes you feel free. Try something else than Amsterdam.

“More, much more than a bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Fine piece of functional architecture, elegant and strong; a sublime eye catcher. Intended to bridge the formerly simple and rather poor South border neighbourhoods with the city center, it became a landmark of its own right. And indeed, the original intention became reality. Nowadays the South bank has become a proof of modern city building, a lively and characteristic business quarter with fashionable apartment buildings. A successful proof of vision by the architect and Municipality.

“Interesting design, lighting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

It's a bridge... it connects the two river banks.. so far so good.....

If you walk over it also offers a good view of the riverscape and Rotterdam's peculiar post-modern architecture. However the most interesting time to view the bridge itself is on a foggy winter's evening from a few hundred meters away on the south side when, if you look back, a trick of the lighting makes the main wishbone support seem to rise endlessly into the sky.

“Beautiful bridge in a stunning city!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

I just spent a sunny day wandering around the city where this bridge was prominent and spectacular! There were cute little water taxis running around under it.
