Create an itinerary including Magere Brug
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 overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

  • I made a point of seeking this bridge out- it's not that close to other famous areas in Amsterdam- and was disappointed. It kinda just looked like a normal but tiny modern style drawbridge to me...

  • When all is said and done it's a bridge! It was a beautiful spring day, clear blue sky, so it was nice to just pause and enjoy the moment.

  • Beautiful bridge at night! I definitely recommend going there around sunset, colours are beautiful! Its really special, not big but perfectly built. 100% recommend passing there if you can.
  • A beautiful place to hang around. The bridge wasn’t big but the structure was special. Knowing the story and the engineering behind it made the trip even better! A great spot for taking photos and sitting along the bank with friends. Lovely.
