Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The pattern of the canals do form a ring, making the old city look like a theater. The ring canals are linked to canals in straight lines so they make up streetlike formations for transport. Plan to take long walks along the canals to drink in the atmosphere and admire the scenery. That's what we did.

    It's an iconic bridge over a picturesque canal. Everyone stops on this bridge to take a photo, and we did as well. One of the prettiest spots in the city, even if the bridge itself is not all that attractive.

    PROS
    * Pretty attractive quaint view
    * Many illuminated bridges

    CONS
    You have to find the correct/best place to see this- and at night when the bridges are illuminated

    "I VISITED THIS PLACE"...
    ... after I learned about it on my Flagship Amsterdam cruise. I walked to it after the Analogues concert at the Carre Theater.

    WAS IT WORTH THE COST?
    It doesn't have a cost

    WOULD "I VIST THIS PLACE' AGAIN"
    If I happened to be in the area- sure

    The Python Bridge is an interesting looking bridge with a wavy, undulating form that spans the canal between Sporenburg and Borneo Island. The strange shape is actually to allow taller ships to pass underneath.

    Looks very pretty and fun to walk across a "step" bridge in famously flat Amsterdam, with great views over the canals.

    For leftist militants this bridge will forever be linked with battle. During the coronation of a new queen -30 April 1980- the bridge was the scene of confrontation between special police units (ME) and protesters who tried to make their way to Dam square. At the time the adjacent Stopera area was just a bare lot of land suitable for both mounted police and youngsters to fight it out.

    For lovers of city architecture it is just another monumental bridge. Built in 1883, the design inspired by Pont Neuf across the Seine river in Paris.

    Aluminiumbrug is one of many drawbridges in Amsterdam. Beautiful? No, not at all. A special one? Yes! because it was first Dutch bridge with an aluminum bridge deck. Tourist began to hang love padlocks in the brug but it's forbidden because it would damage the ( aluminium ) bridge.

    There are small bridge crossings scattered throughout central Amsterdam. And then you find Torensluis, which is one of the widest in the entire city at 42 metres wide.

    The reason for the size of this particular bridge is that it included tower as part of its original construction in the mid 17th-century.

    These days, you find a large open space with wide views of the Single, as you cross Torensluis. On the north side of the bridge there is an interesting contemporary statue of 19th-century Dutch writer Eduard Douwes Dekker (Multatuli).

    Nescio bridge is a cycle and footbridge in Amsterdam. It's connected the Ijburg (the eastside area of the city) and Amsterdam east. This steel suspension bridge is the first suspension bridge only for pedestrian and cylists in the country. And with the length that almost 800m, it's also the longest cycle and footbridge in the Netherlands. The bridge has won several awards. The only way to get to this bridge is by bike.

    The bridge, named after city sculptor Piet Kramer, features seals looking out over the water, as well as two bridge houses, one of which houses a puppet theatre. Cool artwork, nice views.

    Enneus Heermabrug (bridge) is a bridge in a quite new neighbourhood in Amsterdam, the Ijburg. The Ijburg is located on the eastern edge of the city. The bridge was finished in 2001 and it is for cars, pedestrians, bikers and tram traffic (tram number 26). From a distance you see it just a bridge but when you are standing on it, it's wow!, really a great work. Because of the shape of the bridge, there was a rumor that locals called it 'BH' brug ( bra bridge).

    Vaz Dias bridge is one of so many bridges in Amsterdam. it is the bridge number 238. The railings of the bridge are nicely decorated with steel construction shapes. It becomes an interesting bridge when you have a chance to see the poem that is arranged in twelve panels below the trap ( under the bridge ). I just had a chance to see it when the boat I was in, passing by under this bridge.

    This bridge has a hidden terrace allowing to sit closer to the water and enjoy the scenery. Instead of Hildo Krop, Ton Kalle provided the half circles atop the pillars. Nice quaint bridge.

    Nice bridge with imposing backdrops formed by the Lyceum on one side and the Indië-Nederland monument om the other. Pretty ornaments by Krop. Little bridge houses on both sides, apparently inhabited?
