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

De Isa van Eeghenbrug – Bridge 30 | Amsterdam

This bridge is currently undergoing renovations, so here are a couple of pictures to give you an idea of what it usually looks like.

Bridge number 30 (De Isa van Eeghenbrug), also known as brug nummer Dertig, is another impressive design created by Piet Kramer. Interestingly, this bridge was officially named in 2016 and is dedicated to Isabella Henriette van Eeghen, an esteemed archivist and historian at the nearby Amsterdam City Archives. Initially, the bridge was situated on the Amsteldijk. However, since 2007, it has found its home in the De Bazel Building on Vijzelstraat, right next to the bridge itself. The current bridge – assigned the number 30 – stands proudly over the Herengracht, spanning a location where a bridge has existed since approximately 1727.
