The swan

The 800-metre long Erasmus Bridge spans the Maas River and links the northern and southern parts of Rotterdam. The suspension bridge has a 139-metre high steel pylon, which is secured with 40 cables. The shape of the pylon gave the bridge its nickname, The Swan. The Erasmus Bridge is the icon of Rotterdam.

 

According to USA Today one of the world’s most spectacular new bridges.

 

Designed by Ben van Berkel (1996)
