Yes, I know its just a bridge but really worthwhile going to have a look at. Great spirit of innovation ! You can walk there in around 15-20 mins from central station.

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.

This bridge connects Borneo-eiland on the east-side of the island to the more northern Panamakade. Pedestrians only. In summer it is used by children for swimming, though officially not allowed. This bridge and the surrounding area show the new Amsterdam, which still focusses on living...More

This quirky, red steel bridge is one of a pair that links Borneo Island to Sporenburg Island in the Eastern Docklands area of Amsterdam. Whereas the lower bridge, at the opposite end of the harbour, is suitable for cyclists, prams and those with mobility difficulties,...More

This red dragon bridge connects two parts of Amsterdam that would otherwise leave pedestrians going a whole lot of extra distance to 'bridge'. So this bridge is all but 'pointless'. It is quite a climb, but there is another bridge if this one is too...More

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!
