There is one bridge in Amsterdam’s central canal belt that gives a view of no less than 15 bridges. This unusual sight is found at the bridge crossing of the Reguliersgracht with the Herengracht, on the side with odd numbers. Standing on this bridge with your back to the Thorbeckeplein, you will see six arched bridges in a row. To the left you will find six more over the Herengracht and on the right you will see the next two. The 15th is the bridge you are standing on. It is particularly worth coming here at night as the bridges are illuminated giving one of the most beautiful and romantic views in Amsterdam.

There were many canals and bridges in Amstersdam. Whenever you did canal cruising, the canal boat would slow down at the spot near Herengracht where you could probably see a line of canals in front of you. It would be more attractive at night time...More

The city of Amsterdam has an amazing canal system. For a local like me, it's a joy to ride with a bike from A to B, and every time I see something new.
