The people of Rotterdam call the Erasmus bridge the Swan. It's a beautiful bridge that has got some troubles in the beginning because with heavy winds it moved a little. It was designed by an architect of Amsterdam.

It is nothing spectacular so to say yet an important landmark in Rotterdam. It may not appeal to outsiders but having spent some good time in Rotterdam - this bridge and what's around the bridge - had surely won a special place somewhere in my mind. Is it worth keeping it as a checklist item in Rotterdam? ''NO, at least... More

It's a bridge. It's fine. It does what a bridge is supposed to do. It's not worth going to see as an attraction in itself but it is worth using if you want to get from one side if the water to the other.

Another beautiful piece of architecture in Rotterdam. The bridge looks fascinating during day time and is beautifully lit at night. We took the tram as it was quite a cold day and enjoyed the bridge from the comfort of the tram. As much as the bridge, the setting is very beautiful.

Beautifull architectional piece, very nicely lit. We didn't go on the bridge though, took a walk around the channel towards the Oude Willems Brug. Very nice!

This bridge is my view from the office. You have to pass this bridge not only in the daytime but definitely in the nighttime. Where you feel like you're walking on millions of sparkling stars as soon as the lights on the bridge hits the floor. The view from the bridge is as beautiful. I still walk over this bridge... More

At the risk of stating the obvious, the best part of this bridge is that it crosses the water where it does! It's a lovely structure that is best appreciated just by walking across it, as all the lines of the cables and uprights change as you walk along. Beautifully lit up at night with wonderful geometric shapes. The fact... More

This enormous bridge is an architectural masterpiece and crosses a very busy waterway. It is well worthwhile to walk towards the bridge to view it and then cross the bridge to view the water activities.
