De Magere Brug
The bridge has been renovated several times and until 1994 was opened and closed by two bridge operators. That was quite an art because the two bridge halves had to be perfectly aligned when they were closed. The operators achieved this by standing on the bridge halves and using their weight to set the balance. This practice was banned in 1994 and the bridge was fitted with a mechanical control system.
These days the bridge is best known for its beautiful appearance. Particularly at night, when the bridge is lit up by more than 1,800 lights and casts a fairytale reflection on the water. If you happen to be in the neighbourhood, you should definitely go and have a look.
