Blauwbrug, Amsterdam: 9 reviews and 16 photos
One of the most impressive bridges of Amsterdam is the "Blauwe Brug". It has an almost Parisian look and was built in 1884 under architect W.H. Springer and B. de Greef and replaced the former wooden "Blue bridge" that was here already from around 1600. The stone bridge has three openings for ships and is richly decorated. The bases are formed like ships bows and on top columns with leave-motives, masks and finally imperial crowns. Also the lantern poles have shipping decorations and the lanterns themselves are again in the shape of crowns. The bridge houses a busy road that is also used by the tramway.
Directions: Near the Stopera
