There is one bridge in Amsterdam’s central canal belt that gives a view of no less than 15 bridges. This unusual sight is found at the bridge crossing of the Reguliersgracht with the Herengracht, on the side with odd numbers. Standing on this bridge with your back to the Thorbeckeplein, you will see six arched bridges in a row. To the left you will find six more over the Herengracht and on the right you will see the next two. The 15th is the bridge you are standing on. It is particularly worth coming here at night as the bridges are illuminated giving one of the most beautiful and romantic views in Amsterdam.

This bridge is on the junction of the Reguliersgracht and Herengracht - if you stand in the right place you can see bridges in each direction - there are 15 including the one you are standing on. At night the bridges are lit up.

This is really nice at night; not as spectacular during the day. I'm not sure if it's necessary to travel to see it but if you're in the area, it's a pretty sight. We went on a canal tour and they never mentioned it as...More

There were many canals and bridges in Amstersdam. Whenever you did canal cruising, the canal boat would slow down at the spot near Herengracht where you could probably see a line of canals in front of you. It would be more attractive at night time...More
