We saw this bridge open to let a boat pass under which is apparently quite unusual. We also saw it closed and walked across it. It is different from the standard bridges and worth seeing.

Worth seeing, mainly at night. It is typical for Amsterdam to have bridges but this one is one of a kind.

The Magere Brug, also known as the Skinny Bridge is a bridge over the river Amstel connecting the Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht and famously features in the James Bond movie, Diamonds Are Forever.

The centre of the bridge features two drawbridges that can be raised to allow taller ships to pass. Really there nothing especially notable about the bridge apart from it's film appearances. I wouldn't go out of the way to see this.

We recently walked over Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge) which crosses the Amstel River just south of the Hermitage Museum and Blue Bridge (Blauwbrug).

There have been bridge crossings at this location since the late 17th century. The name Skinny Bridge is apparently from that time period.

What you find today is a modern bridge built in 1934 by Piet Kramer, it features a thousand light bulbs which illuminate the bridge in the evening. Otherwise, the bridge is a rather straightforward with a centre section which can be opened for larger watercraft making way up or down the Amstel River.

Have a closer look if you plan to visit the nearby Hermitage Museum or if you simply have interest in bridges and are in the area.

For some nice views, without worrying about cars, stop and check out the skinny bridge-the only pedestrian only bridge in all of the city.

The bridge is pretty, and offers good views all around. Doesn't take much time, but still a good place to soak in the city.
