Lekkeresluis – Bridge 59 | Amsterdam

Lekkeresluis (Bridge 59 Tasty Lock)
The Lekkeresluis is named after bakers who advertised and sold their food on the bridge. Some (though not many) locals refer to it as Papeneilandbrug, after the local café at Prinsengracht 2 and let’s face it this is how many of the bridges get their now formalised names so it’s not a crazy nickname. The bridge gives a view of the Westertoren and in 1995 the bridge was declared a municipal monument so it’s unlikely the less formal nickname will become a thing.

The bridge is adjacent to the municipal monument the but is not a monument itself.
