Bridge of 15 Bridges Tours

Bridge of 15 Bridges
Sometimes referred to as the “Venice of the North”, Amsterdam is well known for its picturesque canals, romantic bridges, and narrow houses. The city boasts well over 1,200 bridges, and one of the most visited is known as the Bridge of 15 Bridges, which offers views of 15 of the city’s bridges from one spot. 

The Basics
To see all 15 bridges, stand on the bridge where Reguliersgracht meets Herengracht with your back to Thorbeckeplein. You’ll see six bridges across the Reguliersgracht and another six bridges when you look down the Herengracht, to your left. You’ll find two more bridges on your right; add in the one you’re standing on, and that makes 15. Several walking tours of Amsterdam stop here, but the best views are from the water, on a boat.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • You’ll have to walk around the bridge and look at the views from a variety of angles (or take a canal boat along the water) to see all of the bridges.
  • This bridge is considered one of the most romantic spots in Amsterdam and is popular with couples. 
  • Visit in the early morning or early evening for the best photo opportunities.

How to Get There
The Bridge of 15 Bridges is found at the intersection of Reguliersgracht and Herengracht. To get there, take tram 4, 9, or 14 to Rembrandtplein and then walk to Thorbeckeplein, which will lead you to the bridge on Reguliersgracht. The 15 Bridges view is only a 5-minute walk from Rembrandtplein. 

When to Get There
While the Bridge of 15 Bridges is a great spot to visit at any time of the day, the views are particularly impressive and romantic when the edges of the bridges are illuminated at night. This is a popular spot, so expect crowds in the evenings. Consider booking an evening canal cruise to see the illuminated bridges from the water. 

The Seven Bridges of Reguliersgracht
For another great view of the canal bridges, continue south on Reguliersgracht to the Seven Bridges of Reguliersgracht. This is the point where Reguliersgracht crosses the Keizersgracht, and it is a popular spot for photographers, who come to try to capture images of the arched bridges all lined up over the tranquil water. Like the Bridge of 15 Bridges, Seven Bridges is especially beautiful at night, when the edges of the bridges are illuminated. 
Address: Reguliersgracht and Herengracht, Amsterdam, Netherlands
