The Erasmus Bridge is the biggest icon of Rotterdam. The 800 meter long bridge is the connection between the northern and southern part of Rotterdam.
The Erasmus Bridge was completed in 1996 and was designed by Ben van Berkel. It is definitely recommended to take a walk across the Erasmus Bridge. This gives you beautiful views of the skyline of Rotterdam, both during the day and in the evening.
The Kinderdijk is not located in Rotterdam but is easily accessible from Rotterdam. By metro and bus or till the end of October you can travel by Waterbus departing from the Erasmus bridge. This World Heritage is a must see if you like nature and culture. The Kinderdijk lies below sea level, so to keep our feet dry, the mills have been cooperating with the wind and water for centuries. The Kinderdijk offers a variety of guided walks, and offers good cycling and hiking trails. Go on tour with a guide and learn everything about the mills and how the wind stops the water.
