Amsterdam's most romantic bridge

In the evenings, the charming Magere Brug is very popular with couples and photographers. Thousands of lights romantically illuminate it at night, making the Magere Brug one of the most beautiful bridges in Amsterdam.

Skinny sisters

There is a local legend that the Skinny Bridge was named after the 'magere zussen' (skinny sisters). These two well-off sisters lived on opposite sides of the river. They are said to have had the wooden bridge built to make it easier to visit one another.
