Owner description: Famous "flat" bridge over the Amstel River
Reviewed August 5, 2013

One day, whilst we hired a boat, we sailed under this iconic bridge, then a few days later we walked over it during the daytime; mind the cycles (as with everywhere in Amsterdam, lol); then we took a walk in the evening, for another view. There are some benches in the vicinity so you can stop and admire the view, and at night it is pretty peaceful and lovely illuminated.

This old bridge still earns its keep, opening and closing with amazing regularity. I know this because we rented an apartment right on the Amstel River and this bridge was prominently displayed in the panorama in view from our balcony. We could watch it as it opened and closed. Even large ocean-going ships chug through the open bridge and at other times an unbroken stream of bicycles flow over it.

This bridge would require some walking if you plan on crossing it by land. But if you're bad with maps, you could always take a river cruise which will bring you to within eyesight of this interesting bridge. I prefer the former as it allows you to see for yourself the architecture wonder of such a bridge crossing. We are used to seeing the Tower Bridge, but this is a different thing altogether, and you need to place it into context with the time of construction. Modern bridges doesn't look as fine as this.

Centrally located on the Amstel, this quaint little bridge is photogenic and provides a nice viewpoint up and down the Amstel.

If you get on a canal boat it would probably be something you will see, when I lived in Amsterdam it was always nice to view the Amstel from this bridge.
