One of the most iconic drawbridges in a city of waterways, Magere Brug stretches over the Amstel River to help connect the city. Though the present structure wasn't built until 1934, its white wooden design replicates the historical bridge that proceeded it. Enjoy a stroll over the river and soak up the city center's bustling atmosphere. Use of the bridge is limited to pedestrians and cyclists; it opens several times a day to allow boats through along the river. Planning Amsterdam trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

So pretty but knocked one star off cuz half the bridge's lights weren't working. Tiny bit of a bummer but we are here! Thank you Amsterdam for being so beautiful!
An excellent location to enjoy the new year's fireworks. Of you ask where will the fireworks happen, the answer is, EVERYWHERE!! Just be in an open space so your view is not obstructed by buildings and you will be able to enjoy the show!
