Magere Brug

Local nameMagere Brug
LocationAmsterdam, Netherlands

This bascule bridge crosses the river Amstel and its origins go back to the 17th century. At that time, the bridge that crossed the river in this location truly was a narrow one. It was then when the bridge got its name. That one was demolished though and was replaced several times by new bridges that grew in width. The present-day bridge (which was built in 1934) is therefore not as skinny as its first predecessor was.

It is a popular tourist place in Amsterdam since it looks wonderful after sunset – it lights up with hundreds of lights. It even featured in one of the Bond films – Diamonds are Forever.
