“Wrong mark in the map”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

The bridge goes over the Amstel and the mark in the map is wrong! If you walk by the Amstel you will find it.

“Famous bridge”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This bridge has a long history, begining in 1691, with conflicting accounts on how it got its name. It was rebuilt in 1871, and again in 1934.

Iconic and very pretty bridge, particularly at night - opens a few times a day but not at regular intervals. If the bridge is opened and you have to cross the Amstel, take the Blauwbrug to its north.

If you're interested in bridges, note that the site of "Bridge of 15 Bridges" is pretty nearby - there you can see 15 bridges at a single location!

“My favourite bit of Amsterdam”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

It's cute, it's illuminated, it's a great place to stop and admire the view up and down the river. They've got some kind of audio installation going on at the moment that might come as a bit of a surprise if you're not expecting it.

“Most attractive illumination”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Magere Brug is the most beautiful illuminated attraction in Amsterdam but when the Christmas comes to town it becomes even more pretty. From 7th of December this year there are a lot of unique illuminated things around the Bridge. Just amazing!
