Reguliersgracht and Herengracht , Amsterdam, Netherlands

The Basics

To see all 15 bridges, stand on the bridge where Reguliersgracht meets Herengracht with your back to Thorbeckeplein. You’ll see six bridges across the Reguliersgracht and another six bridges when you look down the Herengracht, to your left. You’ll find two more bridges on your right; add in the one you’re standing on, and that makes 15. Several walking tours of Amsterdam stop here, but the best views are from the water, on a boat.

When to Get There

While the Bridge of 15 Bridges is a great spot to visit at any time of the day, the views are particularly impressive and romantic when the edges of the bridges are illuminated at night. This is a popular spot, so expect crowds in the evenings. Consider booking an evening canal cruise to see the illuminated bridges from the water.

The Seven Bridges of Reguliersgracht

For another great view of the canal bridges, continue south on Reguliersgracht to the Seven Bridges of Reguliersgracht. This is the point where Reguliersgracht crosses the Keizersgracht, and it is a popular spot for photographers, who come to try to capture images of the arched bridges all lined up over the tranquil water. Like the Bridge of 15 Bridges, Seven Bridges is especially beautiful at night, when the edges of the bridges are illuminated.
