Brug tweeënzestig – Bridge 62 | Map and location

Like most of our previous bridges in the centre of Amsterdam there has been a bridge here at the location of Bridge 62 for centuries. Balthasar Florisz. van Berckenrode already drew a bridge here on his map of 1625. It is then located over the Lely Graft in the Prince Graft. It shares the history with , for some renewal and renovation. This is reflected in the external resemblance of the bridge, although has one passage and bridge 61 has three, the Prinsengracht is simply much wider than the Leliegracht. At the end of the 19th century, a reduction also led to a discussion, the skippers protested against it but the municipal council nevertheless voted in favour of a reduction in height in order to facilitate land traffic.
