Historic and iconic...what a great view over the Maas river! This beautiful bridge dates all the way back to the 13th century...

Nice bridge

Lovely old bridge spanning the river Maas. Bit odd design though, as there is a loft bridge in order to a accommodate larger ships are one end.

What a view!
Dec 2019
The bridge straddles the Maas river, connecting the original historical center of town with the later, more modern additions. It's a fine crossing, in all seasons!

There are good views of the city from the bridge. The bridge is pedestrian friendly. Also good views of the river.

Ancient Connection
Sep 2019
This bridge is the main connection between the two parts of the city on either side of the river. It is curious for being a bridge that elevates when boats need to pass underneath, yet, it still allows for pedestrians to cross even when elevated. A curious bridge built over an ancient waterway.

Crossing the Maas in Maastricht
Jul 2019
In the historical center of Maastricht you will find the Saint Servaas Bridge connecting the 2 sides of the city.
This bridge has been around for several hundred years (built in the 13th century)- modernized and refurbished through the centuries. Today it has a built in section that can be tilted so the large ships navigating on the Maas can go past it. Don't worry there is a loud alarm when they open the bridge so you have time to move from the tilted section.
It is a pedestrian area - where bicycles are also allowed but you don't really have to worry about the cars when you are on the bridge.
On one side of the bridge you can also find a small souvenir shop - if you need some memorabilia.... I recommend you include the bridge in your tour of Maastricht.

Lovely stone bridge

The view of Maas was stunning. On Saturday so many people were walking on the bridge in both directions. The breeze from the river was refreshing.

Lovely historical bridge
May 2019 • Couples
The St Servaasbridge is a lovely seven arch bridge which connects the two "halves" of the city of Maastricht. It is amazing that this has been around since the 13th century so it is a definite must see while in the city. Unfortunately for us it was a very overcast day so we were unable to get any decent photographs but it was still great to see.

A nice walk with river views
Jul 2019 • Couples
Not much to say really other than its a quieter way to cross the river Maas to the other side of Maastricht. The only traffic you will find are humans and cycles. Good view of the river as you cross.

Beautiful bridge
Jul 2019 • Family
One of the many bridges crossing the Maas river in Maastricht. Two of the ancient arches were removed to create a higher bridge to allow for bigger boats to navigate under. This is now mainly a pedestrian and cycle bridge. It is worth crossing to try the cafes on both sides.
