Willemsbrug is the smaller brother of the Erasmus Bridge. So, take a wonderful walk over both bridges, walking along both sides of the Maas river. Noordereiland, in the middle of the river is part of the trip. A unique small part of Rotterdam, fully surounded...More

Not the ugliest of bridges, serves its purpose of connecting the North and the South of Rotterdam in the Eastern part of the center, but nothing special. Also not the most beautiful of bridges.

This bridge is nice, but not that special. But you can walk to the northern part of the city. The other bridge near this bridge 'de Hef' is very nice to see.

Rotterdam is famous for its innovative architecture, also regarding her bridges over the river Meuse. A famous landmark and skyline definer is the Erasmus bridge, but a brilliant second is the striking suspension bridge, 1100 m to the east, called Willemsbrug, painted in glorious red....More
