The lynchpin of Rotterdam

Wonderful to see for the first time; everything in Rotterdam seems to centre around this bridge which at the time must have been quite outstanding.

Amazing piece of engineering. Well designed for pedestrians, cyclists, vehicles and trams. Social distancing is clear and people respect it.

Majestic bridge
Apr 2021 • Couples
Such a majestic sight to see. Perhaps best seen at night. Unfortunately due to corona regels and the avondklok, we didn't get to see it at night. At 9pm,it wasn't fully dark yet. Still, even in the morning, it was such a beauty to see. Definitely looking forward to visiting it again and making some night shots.

Piece of art

This bridge is worth a visit for sure.
While walking around the city you will find many interesting structures, but the Erasmus Bridge fears no opponent.
It's so big you might struggle to fit it in a single picture.
Despite the lack of activities nearby, you can sit on the benches that can be found on the banks to relax and take some nice pictures.

Great for pedestrian crossing of the big river
Feb 2021 • Solo
The iconic Erasmus bridge, nicknamed “the Swan”, crosses the wide river Nieuwe Maas in Rotterdam. It offers a great opportunity to take a city walk and reach out from the industrious North shore to the bubbling “Kop van Zuid” and the gentrified Katendrecht peninsula.
