We took a tram from Centraal Station out to visit this bridge, and then had a bit of a walk to get to it from the tram stop, but it was all worthwhile. My wife and I love to visit things that are a bit...More

We caught a tram out the area and walked to the bridge. It is a red bridge with a quirky and innovative design. It is small though. Being from Australia where we have some amazing bridges I guess am spoiled. We would recommend you didn’t...More

The bridge is being painted, it got a new brighter and redder paint. Also the rest of the bridge is getting maintenance. Note that you can't cross it till the end of July 2017.

An unexpected bridge in with a wonderful view on the top. You can see the Eastern Harbour region with its famous architecture. The whole area is worthwhile visiting. Take the tram and start walking!
