Bridges of Amsterdam

With its network of more than 100km of canals, it’s no surprise that Amsterdam has become renowned as the City of Bridges. Linking the city’s distinct neighbourhoods through an intricate, slowly evolving web, these structures – some of which date back more than 350 years – help bicycles, scooters, locals, tourists, cars, horses, cats and dogs across its roads and over its waters.

This website is a celebration of the hundreds of bridges that help define street-level Amsterdam. It’s intended to be a useful source of information that relates not only to the bridges themselves, but also one that shows how a simple bridge can be inseparably tied to a city’s past, present and future.
