“Harbor and City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Rotterdam is a pleasant city to walk around and admire the architecture. There are several interesting buildings at both ends of the Erasmus Bridge. On the south side of the bridge there is an elevated walk enabling you get a higher view. Or get a higher view from the Erasmus Bridge itself. Lots of traffic on the harbor to watch if you can a place to watch from, and there are plenty of those, whether a park or cafe, all along the Maas.

“Waterside Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

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.
