If you stand where the Reguliersgracht meets Herengracht you can count 14 other bridges into the distance if you look in every direction!
Amsterdam’s Bridge of 15 Bridges
The bridge is called “brug van 15 bruggen”. There are six visible bridges to the left up Herengracht, and six arches down Reguliersgracht.
The view might be best seen from the water level on a boat, but you can definitely see quite a few bridges even from the top. If you take a canal cruise they may not mention it, but if you know where to look you can spot the bridges in every direction.
The spot where Reguliersgracht crosses the Keizersgracht is known as the Seven Bridges. In my opinion this is even prettier than the 15 bridges view.
There is a small hotel located there with the same name that would be a charming place to sleep, and you would have the best access to the spot for early morning and late night photography!
The views can be most spectacular at night when the bridges are lit up, but of course in the day time it is lovely as well.
Just a little hint for something to see when you are strolling or boating around the city! Enjoy!
