Lijnbaansbrug – Bridge 10 | Amsterdam


Bridge number 10 (Brug Tien) Lijnbaansbrug or Line track bridge. This bridge connects Lijnbaanssteeg with the southern quay of Blauwburgwal and spans the Singel. Just like the Lijnbaanssteeg, the bridge is named after the line lanes of the rope-makers that were located here when the area outside the Singel (then city boundary) was still a kind of industrial estate. Not to be confused with Lijnbaansgracht, named after the same industry but in a completely different area.
