This is a beautiful old stone bridge that allows you to cross the Maas river. It’s pedestrian and bicycles only.

Part of the bridge had to be destroyed and rebuild taller in order to let commercial shipping through.

In my opinion, there are two aspects here: the bridge itself is worth visiting due to its historical importance, but also the views of Maastricht and the river from the bridge make it worthwhile.

This bridge is the main connection between the two parts of the city on either side of the river. It is curious for being a bridge that elevates when boats need to pass underneath, yet, it still allows for pedestrians to cross even when elevated. A curious bridge built over an ancient waterway.

This is just a bridge one of two walking bridges that cross the Maas River. The most interesting thing about this bridge is the drawbridge portion that raises vertically when tall boats come through. As the bridge rises the metal sidewalks raise to a steep angle but you can still use them.

In the historical center of Maastricht you will find the Saint Servaas Bridge connecting the 2 sides of the city.
This bridge has been around for several hundred years (built in the 13th century)- modernized and refurbished through the centuries. Today it has a built in section that can be tilted so the large ships navigating on the Maas can go past it. Don't worry there is a loud alarm when they open the bridge so you have time to move from the tilted section.
It is a pedestrian area - where bicycles are also allowed but you don't really have to worry about the cars when you are on the bridge.
On one side of the bridge you can also find a small souvenir shop - if you need some memorabilia.... I recommend you include the bridge in your tour of Maastricht.

One of the many bridges crossing the Maas river in Maastricht. Two of the ancient arches were removed to create a higher bridge to allow for bigger boats to navigate under. This is now mainly a pedestrian and cycle bridge. It is worth crossing to try the cafes on both sides.

This bridge links two sides of Masstrict together over its namesake river. Crossing over the bridge with its scenic view of the Maas and the city with its lovely architecture is always a welcome treat between store visits and chores in the city.

This bridge is an important link between the old city center and the Railway station. It is only used by pedestrians and cyclists, no cars are allow at all. Overlooking both side from the bridge itself at sunset brings scenic view of the riverside.

Location: If you arrive in Maastricht by train and walk directly away from the front of the main station along Stationsstraat and Wycker Brugstraat after about 600 meters you should arrive at Sint Servaasbrug.

This is a pedestrian bridge with access for cycles. The footpath is quite wide which is useful as the edge by the parapet is often occupied by people taking pictures or just taking in the view and the cyclists can come through their lane in the middle quite fast!

Near the middle of the bridge are steps going down to another level to access a walkway from Sint Servaasbrug to Wilhelminabrug 300 meters down the river. It is possible to walk the 300m to Wilhelminabrug past the boat moorings on the walkway - or continue over Sint Servaasbrug to the old city.

At the railway station end of the bridge is a metallic part of the bridge which can be raised to allow the passage of larger boats beneath. The rest of the bridge is of stone arch construction.

At the old city end of the bridge on the left-hand side coming away from the railway station is a small building which serves as a souvenir shop.

Pretty bridge over the River Maas that connects the Wyck district with the City centre. Keep your wits about you when crossing the bridge (many photography opportunities) because the bikes seem to come from all over the place.
