There are many bridges in Netherland, but the Erasmus Bridge takes the prize any day. It is a cable-stayed and bascule bridge and connects the North Rotterdam to the South Rotterdam. The ultra-urban abstract design of the bridge stands out from the silhouette of Rotterdam and after dark, the lights add to its steely charm.
The bridge was completed in 1996 and was designed by Ben van Berkel. Visiting the bridge is a win-win since the panoramic view of Rotterdam over the river is just as fabulous as the bridge itself.

Erasmusbrug, Rotterdam Reviews - Write a Review
Great view over the port of Rotterdam. Good location to take pictures of the Rotterdam skyline.
I just can't get enough from this view. I love this city❤
Amazing architecture. Place to walk, cycle and drive. There s a water taxi stop at the end of the bridge
It's a bridge you can walk on and it's also very pretty
I live within 200 meters from the Erasmus Bridge. When I do my jogging session across the two bridges (the other being Willemsbrug - which is a mini Golden Gate Bridge that just lacks the brighter red that would make it attractive!) it simply looks good against the skyline from most angles. I don't know what the Erasmus bridge's secret is, but it is unconditionally beloved. Fun fact is that in 1996 the ''cords' started to swing violently due to a certain wind speed which was fixed by adding dampers:
