After climbing a significant amount of stairs, and having reached the top of the bridge, you will get a stunning view of the city of Purmerend. The stairs are lit at night with energy-efficient LED lights, which on itself also provides an attractive piece of architecture to gaze at.
The part designed for cyclists and wheel chairs also contains a slight slope because one bank of the canal is higher than the other. Since the canal is still in use, the architects had to implement a central part that can be lifted up when ships have to pass. The bridge is located just next to bus station, so if you’re interested it’s easy to pop by.
