When I first arrived in Amsterdam last April and started reading the
tourist books, I often came across this Magere Brug ("Skinny Bridge")
as a definite must-see attraction, over the Amstel River.
You can learn more about it here
but the main thing is that it was built in 1670, broadened in 1871, and
renovated in 1969. Since 2003 it it used by pedestrians and cyclists
only. It's opened many times a day for ships and has 1200 lightbulbs
that are turned on at night. Now THAT'S what I want to see, when it
starts getting darker earlier!
[Today I'm in Amsterdam.]
