What people are saying:

Transportation: Not far from the center of the Netherlands, across the canal ~ by the subway can reach this side, there are also tram 7 road 10 can be reached, from Weesperplein get off, walk not far to reach. There are also public parking spaces nearby, which is convenient for self-driving people. But the roads are narrow and almost all are passing by car. Tickets: This bridge is free ~ is a building with traffic functions. You don't need tickets ~ Recommended reasons: The thin bridge is also called the Magal Bridge Magere Brug. The original Magal Bridge is a very narrow bridge with a wider bridge than the original. The original bridge was built in 1670. The current bridge is only a copy of the original bridge. ~ Slim bridge can be walked or driven. The thin bridge spans the Amsterdam River and is a wooden suspension bridge. It is the most famous suspension bridge in Amsterdam and the design is simple. This bridge also often appears in Amsterdam postcards or urban promotion ~ There are also many movies filmed here, such as the movie 007 diamond ~ Best play time: Personally think the thin bridge at night is better looking ~ Slim bridge will have more than 1200 lights at night, It looks very bright, compared to the quiet canal on the side ~Walking on the canal at night, looking at the thin bridge from far and near, is a beautiful thing ~

Additional Information


Alas, Skinny Bridge is skinny no more. Originally built in 1691 the Magere Brug, Dutch for skinny bridge, was an old wooden bascule type bridge over the Amstel River in Amsterdam. The bridge was so skinny it was difficult for two pedestrians to pass each other on it. The current bridge on the site, still called Skinny Bridge, was built in 1934 and is a particularly popular spot on the river. Skinny Bridge is magnificently lit at night and a frequent target of romantics and photographers. A night trip to Skinny Bridge is a must on a visit to Amsterdam.
