"Magere Brug, or skinny bridge - at night only" Canals & Boat Tours Tip by Laalasa

Canals & Boat Tours, Amsterdam: 30 reviews and 39 photos

The Magere Brug, or skinny bridge (because it was so narrow when originally built only one person could cross at a time) on the Amstel river does not make an impression if you go in the daytime.

Apparently it is lit with hundreds of tiny lights at night which makes it look really beautiful. We learnt about it after we left Amsterdam - so make sure you go there when it's dark.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
