Owner description: Considered an architectural work of art, Rotterdam's imposing bridge that is shaped like a harp soars over the largest harbor in Europe.

The Erasmus Bridge is one of the main routes over the River Maas in Rotterdam. You can get great views of Rotterdam and activity on the river from the bridge. In addition to vehicular traffic lanes, the bridge has bicycle and pedestrian lanes as well, so it is very user friendly. Not only is the bridge well designed and functional, but also it is photogenic. On clear days with a bright blue sky you can get interesting pictures of the superstructure of the bridge. The bridge also is good in the foreground of pictures looking towards the taller buildings in the city. If you visit Rotterdam, a picture of or from the Erasmus Bridge is a must.

Great to be there, every time: by cardriving, train, byke of walking.
The structure is always the same, but the surrounding is the constant change of colours in the air and on the road.

A very different and modern bridge. Worth walking across for the views. Some good places for pictures

The Erasmus Bridge is a stunning example of modern architecture - an absolute work of art. A walk across the bridge gives one a sense of the activity on the River Maas - ferries, pleasure boats, water taxis/buses, barges and commercial shipping. Rotterdam is a true maritime city.

Our hotel overlooked the bridge and it was beautiful especially at night. It was wonderful to watch all the barges going to and fro under the bridge.
