The so-called Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge) is probably the most famous bridge in Amsterdam. This picturesque white-painted drawbridge has spanned the River Amstel since 1672.

According to some Amsterdammers the bridge is named after two ladies called Mager: two wealthy sisters who lived on opposite sides of the Amstel. They supposedly had this bridge built in order to make it easier to visit each other. The real reason for the name, however, is much more simple - the bridge used to be so narrow that two people could barely cross at the same time. As time passed the bridge was replaced by a wider example and the name 'Skinny' was not quite so appropriate as it was.
