The De Hef is a railway lift-bridge which runs over the Royal Harbour and was built in the late 19th century. The bridge was designed in 1927 (first of its kind in Europe) and was a main location for a movie made in 1928.

Today, the bridge is no longer funtional but is a monument which keeps the history alive in Rotterdam’s fast-paced urban sphere.

Take a walk around the harbor to see the bridge and don’t forget to take some fabulous pictures of the view during a visit here.
