Discovering Amsterdam's Bridges: A Guide to the City's Iconic Landmarks

Hans van Mierlobrug – Bridge 18 | History and information

Like many of the other bridges there has been a bridge here for centuries although the current incarnation is relatively new.
The bridge was replaced between October 1, 1976 and April 30, 1977 by a new arch bridge, again with five passageways. The design of this classic looking bridge comes from Dirk Sterenberg of the Public Works Department. He designed more historic bridges in Amsterdam and also designed new handrails. The bridge was named in January 2021 after D66 founder Hans van Mierlo who lived nearby and walked across this bridge to his pub.
