Erasmusbrug (Erasmus Bridge) Tours

Erasmusbrug (Erasmus Bridge)
Better known by its affectionate local nickname of “the Swan,” Erasmus Bridge crosses the River Nieuwe Maas with its elegant white spines, constructed in 1996 to link north and south Rotterdam across the harbor. Designed by Ben van Berkel, the bridge is an iconic landmark in Rotterdam, and its 456-foot (139-meter) single pylon supports 32 steel cables from which the half-mile (800 m) roadway is suspended. The southern side of the bridge includes Europe’s heaviest bascule, which lifts in order to let shipping transport through. It’s best seen at close quarters from the water on a harbor tour, from above on the viewing platform of Euromast or from the walking and cycling trails around the Port of Rotterdam.

The Swan is beautifully illuminated at night and often provides an eerie backdrop for Rotterdam’s festivals and fireworks displays. In 2005, several planes flew beneath the bridge as part of the daring “Red Bull Air Race.”

Practical Information:

The Erasmus Bridge can be seen from most vantage points around Rotterdam’s harbor.

Rotterdam & Kinderdijk: Welcome to the Future, Welcome to the Past

Climb the Euromast to have an amazing view of the largest port of Europe and visit a working windmill to learn about 700 years of water management.Rotterdam is the Dutch center of landmarks and experimental architecture. After bombings destroyed the entire heart of Rotterdam during World War II, the Dutch rebuilt the city and Rotterdam developed into Europe’s largest port from which the city earns the title ‘Gate to the World’.The windmills of Kinderdijk, meaning ‘Children’s Dike’, represent exactly that. These 19 windmills were built around 1740 to drain the Polder and prevent the land from flooding. Kinderdijk is the largest concentration of such old windmills in the Low Lands and have been on the UNESCO World Heritage List ever since 1997.
