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

Brug Tweeenveertig – Bridge 42 | Map and location

Brug 42 map and location
Like most other bridges in Amsterdam’s 17th-century Canal Ring which was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2010, there has been a bridge here for centuries. City architect Daniël Stalpaert already drew a bridge here on the design part of his map of 1662 although like the district still had to be built around at that time. At Jacob Bosch, buildings can already be seen in 1679 and a bridge with five passageways can be seen. Frederick de Wits map from 1688 showed almost complete buildings with a bridge.
