Python Bridge, officially known as High Bridge, is a bridge that spans the canal between Sporenburg and Borneo Island in Eastern Docklands, Amsterdam. It was built in 2001 and won the International Footbridge Award in 2002. The bright red bridge spans 90 meters and was designed by Adriaan Geuze of the architectural firm West 8. The bridge has stairs, requiring bicycles to be pushed on a stairway ramp.
The visually similar Lage Brug is nearby. It is similar but without the high elevation, which allows cyclists to ride over it.
