Brug Zesenveertig – Bridge 46 | Amsterdam

Bridge 46 unnamed (Brug zesenveertig)
This now arched bridge is located in the northern quay of the Leidsegracht and spans the Keizersgracht. Around the bridge there are buildings on all eight quays that have been designated a national monument the bridge however is not. The unofficial name of the bridge was the Quellijnbrug named after the sculptor Artus Quellinus . He had his workshop on the Molenpad (around the corner from the bridge). This bridge connects and and all three bridges were replaced by arch bridges in the 1970’s although at the time seen as an architectural lie they now seem more aesthetically pleasing for the historic city centre. The bridges may have an old appearance but all three have a concrete span and a concrete foundation
