We walked from one bridge to the other and Haida very pleasant time. The views are wonderful, and it's sure to be a nice afternoon. You can also go running or sprinting in this area. I'd recommend seeing the water way.

It is very rare that you would find a part of the city where you need not use any of the modern transportation methods to explore the city such as trains, buses or trams or taxis.

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.
