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

Brug tweeënzestig – Bridge 62 | Information and history

Not a huge amount to add that hasn’t already been covered for Until April 2016 it was known as the Grote Brouwerssluis. When the municipality of Amsterdam decided that names that could not be traced should be deleted the bridge became known by number alone. Unlike many of the other unnamed bridges so far, the fact that Amsterdam also has a Brouwersgracht and a Brouwerssluis located a kilometer to the north, may have played a part in the removal of this name.
