Owner description: Famous "flat" bridge over the Amstel River

This is one of my every time in Amsterdam photo ops. The pics and view are nicest at night (I think) but good during daylight as well. We biked over the bridge before taking our day time pics then that same night went back for our night shots. It’s worth the time for a few photos.

Nice place and beautiful bridge. Perfect spot to take a Hermitage picture or even to stop and relax.

The Magere Brug is a beautiful bridge to take a stroll across while walking along the streets of Amsterdam. The bridge is outstanding during the day and you might be lucky enough to watch it raise up to let a boat through.

At night the Magere Brug is lit with twinkling lights and has a beautiful ambience. Definitely worth checking out and a great spot for photos.

You look at this bridge and have to admire the Dutch. Smaller than expected but a beautiful sight none the less crossing the mighty Amstel River,The Magere Brug or Skinny Bridge is lit up at night and rightly takes pride of place on many postcards.
No trip to this wonderful city is complete without a trip to see this bridge especially from the water.

It's less than I expected, but beautiful nevertheless. In the night, the show is pretty great. The big Amstel underneath makes everything beautiful :) Highly recommended in the evening, when the lights are on, it's about the hole point of it :)
