'De zwaan' (The Swan)

Alongside the Willems Bridge, the Erasmus Bridge was the second bridge across the Nieuwe Maas, connecting the northern and the southern part of the city.

The famous cable-stayed bridge was designed by Ben van Berkel and has a steel pylon that is 139 metres in height. The shape earned the bridge its nickname The Swan. Walking or cycling down the Erasmus Bridge gives visitors a lovely view of the Rotterdam skyline.
