Bridge of 15 Bridges

Reguliersgracht and Herengracht , Amsterdam, Netherlands

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.

If you want to sit and people and place watch then do this……so relaxing
The staff were extremely helpful and polite- our 11yr old who has a disability was exhausted due to very hot temperatures that day. We approached staff to ask if we could go on earlier boat and they accommodated our request. The 2 boys on the boat were friendly and fun.

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.
