Rotterdam, Netherlands
4.8 / 65
The cable-stayed structure, thrown across the Meuse River, connects the northern and southern parts of the city. The bridge was erected in 1996 by the architect B. van Berkel, the opening took place in the presence of the Queen. The bridge was nicknamed "The Swan" because of the unusual curved design of the main support tower. The building was named after Erasmus of Rotterdam, a humanist, philosopher and writer.
Address:Erasmusbrug, Rotterdam

The swan of rotterdam. Beautiful and stylish. An icon of ROTTERDAM in the truest sense. Best way to experience de Maas river. A stroll on the bridge anytime of the day is amazing. Can board water taxi or visit the maritime museum.

A perfect icon for Rotterdam. Erasmus burg nicley connects to the South of Rotterdam from over the New Maas. People can have nice stroll over the bridge but Rotterdam can be windy so always check the wind speed and of course the weather itself befor.. Read more »

Enjoyed walks across Erasmusbrug during a visit to Rotterdam in late April 2023. Fantastic spot to enjoy sunrise and sunset. A boat ride is a great way to enjoy views of the bridge.

Nice place for taking photos next to a huge constructed bridge. The most amazing is the view of ships and boats passing through the river. It is one of the largest ports in Europe. Actually it has captured me than Hamburg port in Germany. The skyline.. Read more »

Beautiful bride with a diamond pathway. When it’s sunny it looks very trippy from all the sparkles. The view on Rotterdam from the bridge is very nice. There are ways for bikes, cars and pedestrians.

Erasmus Bridge is a wonderful sight as you approach it. It has the elegance of a swan. While in the area it is well worth taking a water taxi to visit the Rotterdam port, a city in itself.

Beautiful bridge and you can take beautiful pictures of Rotterdam, the river and the cruise ships

It's a very beautiful bridge specially at the time of sunset when the sun shines on it from one side. Watch the boats and merchant ships pass under the bridge, watch the giant cruise ship that's parked just near the bridge are some of the a.. Read more »

Very good, let's me cross from one side of the water to the other. Fully functional bridge. 5 stars, would use to cross over boat with chicken, dog, and bag of flour any day of the week!

Quite crowded during peak hours. Constructed to facilitate the orchestration of traffic flows, the bridge design is inspired by, and in turn reflects, the industrial character of Rotterdam, adding to the narrative of the city. The right side is more .. Read more »

The iconic modern bridge in Rotterdam. Which is also know as the Swan due to its unique shape. So beautiful at night when lights are switched on.
Steve White
Interesting bridge to walk across. Some people obviously use the bridge to show their love and devotion, by putting a padlock on the handrail supports, then throwing the keys into the river.
Carl Cencig
Fantastic architecture! A testament to the ingeniosity of the Dutch especially at the time of their post-war reconstruction of Rotterdam in a more modern style versus a return to the old look. The bridge itself is a work of modern art.
Ruth Kavuza
Real impressive view, especially the area around the river with it's huge and modern skyline. I never expected to see that many high rise buildings in a European city. Also, the floor is sparkly.
Alex Bašić
Magnificent and impressive, the erasmus bridge holds grounds to being one of the most exquisite pieces of artistic architecture in Rotterdam. The bridge connects parts of Rotterdam while allowing boats to pass under. In cases of floods the bridge als.. Read more »

When the bridge lights up it a breath taking view, with the e-board on KPN tower playing along small windmills and boats passing on the river. A great place to unwind after a long day.

One of Rotterdam's iconic bridges. It is huge. You only see how large it is when you go away from it. Nice pedestrian and cycling paths over it.

Beautiful bridge, especially when you don't come here very often. a great view of the city and the water. the bridge looks new so it automatically gives you a safe feeling. It is a high bridge though. so beware if you are afraid of heights.
