Erasmus Bridge, Rotterdam

(4.4/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
With a shape often compared to a swan or a harp, Erasmus Bridge reflects the industrial yet creative character of the city. It stands 139 m (456 ft) tall and 802 m (2,631 ft) long above the Nieuwe Maas River, and connects the north and south sides of the city. Featured in Hollywood movies and seen in the Tour de France, the asymmetrical bridge is an icon of Rotterdam. You can cross by car or bus, or on foot or by bicycle. Stop along the way to observe the panorama of this flat city, dotted with some bulky industrial buildings.

  • Arrive Rotterdam celebrity solo, same idea of Luther, Erasmus, Erasmus translated the Bible translated Luther said a prototype of the Bible now and it spreads all over the world to its original, early and had stood between Catholics and Protestants, has been hostile from either his name in rare architectural support does not have a lot so far, but this design is impressive isn't much of a design is the one side of the bridge. No at least I ever seen. The feel of this bridge with his people in Rotterdam pride at wearing the name of Erasmus.
