"Picturesque Trader's Bridge"

This historic footbridge dates from the 19th Century and can be found just outside the University of Amsterdam campus in the city center. It was erected in 1893 to make life easier on Amsterdam's traders and brokers. Situated as it is on the Oudezijds Voorburgwal, a canal very close to the divide between the old side and new side of the city center, the Makelaarsbruggetje would have been part of an important route for the city's merchant classes. It is from this that the bridge gets its name, which translates as the "Little Bridge of Brokers."
