Willemsbrug aka “Golden Gate Bridge” of Rotterdam | Rotterdam Attractions

On a bright and sunny day, the view of the River Maas (aka Nieuwe Maas) is simply stunning!

As you walk along the river, you simply cant help but notice a bridge that is bright red in colour and resembles the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. This bridge is the Willemsbrug aka Willems Bridge.

The bridge was completed in 1981 and was named after King Willem III of the Netherlands. Why? We do not know…

But what we do know is that it not only provides connectivity for the residents in Rotterdam (from the northern part of the city to the Feijenoord district) but also gives tourists (like us!) an excellent photography moment!
