Crossing the Erasmus Bridge
The Erasmus Bridge is one of the most famous and beautiful bridges in the Netherlands. "Erasmusbrug" is a draw bridge and allows giant cargo ships to move through the port of Rotterdam.
Erasmus Bridge is the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world. The bridge is 139 meters tall making it the tallest Dutch bridge.
How tall is 139 meters if we make that into feet?
Can you think of the animal nickname of the tall, white Erasmus Bridge?
Can you find out when the bridge opened?
