It’s challenging to cover every bridge in this tiny nation because Amsterdam is one of the cities with the most bridges in the world. So, we made the decision to provide you with a brief overview of some of the Netherlands’ most stunning bridges.
This magnificent bridge in Rotterdam has practically taken on the status of an icon for the city. It links Rotterdam’s north and south neighborhoods. It’s 139 meters tall and 802 meters long, making it quite difficult to miss. It’s a pretty amazing sight, particularly at night when it’s lit up.
2. Nescio Bridge
Holland’s first suspension bridge was the acclaimed bicycle and footbridge. Its total length of 780 meters makes it among the Netherlands’ longest non-traffic bridges.
This bridge in Eindhoven, the first of its sort in the world, doubles as a suspended bike path. Opened in 2012, it has been a favorite amongst photographers, being especially striking at night.
4. Python Bridge
Just by looking at the bridge, you’ll understand how it acquired its name. The World Footbridge Prize was given to Amsterdam’s 2001-built Python Bridge in 2002. High Bridge is the true name, but no one uses it that way. One of the Netherlands’ most striking bridges, it is 93 meters long.
In Amsterdam, there is an ancient bridge called the Bluawbrug. The Parisian-style architecture of this 19th-century bridge makes it the ideal stop for a romantic stroll. It crosses the Amstel River to link the Rembrandtplein and Waterlooplein neighborhoods. It has been regarded as one of the Netherlands’ most beautiful bridges ever since it opened in 1883.
Slauerhoffbru, a moving bridge, is a completely automatic bascule bridge in Leeuwarden. A portion of the road may swing in and out of the bridge using two arms on the construction. It is 15 meters long and genuinely resembles an automated arm holding a hammer.
