Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Luchtsingel is a symbol of innovation and people power. The first crowd-funded footbridge, it reflects Rotterdam's modern face. Hofplein, a small park and former railway platform, is like a little oasis in the city. An interesting experience for tourists.

Neat place for pictures and cool story (it was crowdsourced). The best part was it led to a great rooftop park with green spaces, a bar, and very unusual structures that you can apparently rent for a night. Stumbled on it by accident but really enjoyed the area.

When you leave the Hofplein roundabout, with the famous fountain in the middle, at the north side, onto the Schiekade, direcly there is a wooden overpass, the "Luchtsingel". The Luchtsingel was the winning entry of a "City Initiative" contest in 2011, and was built with the support of the Rotterdam council. The goal of this pedestrian overpass is to have an easy connection betwen the areas left and right of the busy traffic artery Schiekade. This connection shoukd unlock the area where until the closure of the rsilway line, station Hofplein was situated. Directly after construction of the Luchtsingel, concerns were raised about the availability of a budget for conservation and maintenance of this wooden bridge. These concerns were maybe right. This month, when I llooked the Luchtsingel over, it seemed a bit dilapidated.

Although there is nothing really unique about a pedestrian bridge cum walkway which can now be found in many major Asian metropolises, what is special about the Luchtsingel, translated as "air canal", is in its construction using wood as well as being the world's first crowdfunded public infrastructure project. Since 2015, this 400 metres long pedestrian bridge connects 3 districts in the heart of Rotterdam near the central train station across roads and railway lines. As you walk the bridge, you will notice planks inscribed with names and messages from those who sponsor the construction of the bridge. A detour worth taking as you make your way from Rotterdam Centraal to the Markthal. Another symbol of the city’s innovative spirit!

A bridge and the tram runs along a green patch, part of the modern city. Just OK not worthy of lots of photos.

My husband saw this "random" yellow bridge on a Google image search... So on our trip to the Netherlands, we decided to hunt it down. Truly one of my favorite things we found in the Netherlands. It was really wonderful. Good views of trains and many of the buildings.
If you are into urban photography, this is definitely your place! I took some really lovely pictures of myself and my husband here.
