A crowded intersection of six streets in the center of Amsterdam called Muntplein.
When translated, Muntplein means “Mint Square”. This square is in fact a bridge!
Muntplein, also known as Brug #1 or Bridge #1, dates from 1917. It is the widest bridge in Amsterdam, where the Amstel river flows into the Singel canal.
Muntplein is named after the Munttoren (translation: Mint Tower) in picture. Coins were briefly minted here in the 17th century.
