Blind Donkey Bridge

This bridge is a real photogenic classic. When you stand on it, you should definitely make a full spin and you will be amazed. The bridge owes its name to a supposedly blind donkey that, according to legend, made circles here to drive a horse mill.

Nepomucenus Brug

This bridge houses a statue of a bridge saint, who protects the bridge from collapse. Nepomucenus protects you from drowning and flooding. Make sure to look to the left and right for the best views.
