Prinsensluis – Bridge 60 | Map and location

Brug 60/Prinsensluis map and location
is located in front of the Prinsenstraat and leads over the Prinsengracht. It therefore also connects its two quays. On the other side (out of town) there is no through road (other than the quay).
No prizes for guessing there has been a bridge here for centuries. Joan Blaeu drew a bridge here on his map from 1649, but also Balthasar Florisz. van Berckenrode had already drawn a bridge (with five arches) on his map from 1625. On that last map, both streets were still called Prince Straet and Angeliers Straet and the bridge crosses Prince Graft.
