The Bridges & Locks of the Netherlands

The Netherlands has more than 1500 movable bridges and almost 2000 locks, we have included them on these pages.
You can find them via the bridge map below - they are all 3500 of them, so loading will take a while. If you zoom in and make the area smaller you will notice that it goes smoother and smoother.
Or you can of course use the selection menus in the column on the right. The alphabet is organized by place name: for example, if you are looking for all bridges in Harlingen, click on the H. In the drop-down menus below, the bridges and locks are respectively organized by name.

We have not included the fixed bridges in this overview, but you can of course find them on the Water map back.
