Great views, nice walk.

We walked across the Erasmus bridge on our way to the New York hotel. The views are stunning and it's a very easy walk, with plenty of space for both pedestrians and cyclists.

Awesome views, my favourite bridge in Rotterdam. If you cycle it is quite hard work if you are not used to it :p but when I lived here I was soon fit enough! I recommend to go on a day when the weather is mild because it is harder to cycle in the wind.

Must see, must have been, the heart of Rotterdam. You cannot visit Rotterdam without seeing this bridge. Walk it, enjoy the view and the skyline. Great for some pictures as well.

Wonderful architecture that reminds me of Singapore. You can enjoy it from Aqua Asia Club, while having an excellent dinner.

What can I say. It's a bridge. I think you'll find it will come in handy when you want to cross the river. Looks awesome but don't let the tall structure fool you, car lanes are barely wide enough for two cars. Wanna cross the bridge running? Think again - steeper and longer than it's pretty exterior reveals. Best feature:... More

A beautiful bridge. Lots of runners and bicyclists even though it was very cold on the day we went. We walked all the way from the train station and it was fun. I think wlakign is th best way to explore main parts of Rotterdam.

The Erasmus bridge is one of the iconic landmarks in Rotterdam. Visitors simply have to visit it and you cannot miss it when you drive into the city from the south. I have walked across it numbers of times, and it is always a nice experience.

I cycled along the water front to get a good view of the Erasmus bridge and it really is a feat of engineering with the large white tower part and connecting cables. It seems pretty busy with road traffic, so not too sure if I would want to walk across it myself even though their are pavements if you wish... More
