Holland, with its many canals, has of course many bridges to go over the canals.
The bulk of them are drawbridges that allow for boats to travel through like this one in Edam.
A very modern drawbridge in Rotterdam.When I first saw the bridge in Gouda it was already open and I had no idea what I was looking at – it doesn’t make any sense to see the highway suddenly tilted up towards the sky! Then I figured out it was a drawbridge. Another drawbridge just outside of Gouda.
Some bridges do not lift and therefore only small boats or a canal boats are able to make it underneath.This Dutch tile mural from 1830 shows an Utrecht city scene with a bridge very reminiscent of the one above in Edam.Love locks are another feature of the bridges in Holland.The striking design of the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam.More about the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Bridge.
