“Always an attractive sight”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

... whether you view it from afar, or view the river and the canals from it. The bridge after which our favourite Amsterdam hotel (The Bridge Hotel) further down the street is called. Also good vantage point for viewing water pageants (provided you get there early enough).

“Beautiful at night”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

The Magere Brug is one of several bridges that are lit up at night. A walk around the neighborhood, along the Amstel and over a couple of blocks to the Reguliersgracht is very pleasant. There are a lot of great restaurants on nearby Utrechtsestraat, so for an enjoyable evening, head over there for dinner and have a leisurely stroll around the canals after dark.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

This is one of my every time in Amsterdam photo ops. The pics and view are nicest at night (I think) but good during daylight as well. We biked over the bridge before taking our day time pics then that same night went back for our night shots. It’s worth the time for a few photos.

“Beautiful old bridge in the heart of Amsterdam”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

The Magere Brug is a beautiful bridge to take a stroll across while walking along the streets of Amsterdam. The bridge is outstanding during the day and you might be lucky enough to watch it raise up to let a boat through.

At night the Magere Brug is lit with twinkling lights and has a beautiful ambience. Definitely worth checking out and a great spot for photos.
