Overview

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.

We managed to see some of the bridges during the canal cruise, but when came back later we were disappointed - it's not possible to see all the bridges when you're not in a boat.

This is a cool place to see the reflection of the bridges and their lights at night. To get a good photo make sure to get as close to ground level as possible.

Best when seen from water level. If you look at my photo, you get an idea of how cool the view is.. and you can see I caught my wife, trying to get the same pic.. as a reflection.

I suppose you have to sit in a boat to fully enjoy the view, from the bridge on the Thorbeckeplein side there is no good view. Still, rather enchanting spot.

I am sure this is AMAZING if you know exactly where to stand. We tried several different points and while these are beautiful at night, it’s really hard to see. I think your best chance it to rent a boat.

You can not see 15 bridges from this point. But there are. We were there by day. GoogleMaps did show it to us with „Point de 15 point“ (if anyone else is having trouble finding it). Wasn‘t worth a picture, sadly

This bridge is on the junction of the Reguliersgracht and Herengracht - if you stand in the right place you can see bridges in each direction - there are 15 including the one you are standing on. At night the bridges are lit up.

I saw it both from the boat lower down as well from top of one of the bridges. View from the boat is of course better.
