Walter Süskindbrug

Bridge house 205 – Walter Süskindbrug is the most centrally located bridge house in Amsterdam, and has a magnificent view over the Amstel and the ‘skinny bridge’.

This bridge house is in front of many sights; the Hermitage Museum and its secret garden are next door, the vintage market on Waterlooplein and the world famous Portuguese Synagogue are only two minutes away.

Take a stroll along the Herengracht and check out the most wonderful canal houses, pass by the Holocaust Monument, visit the Hortus Botanicus and greet your fellow SWEETS companions in bridge house 204 – Hortusbrug, finish your walk with a picnic in Wertheimpark.

Good news for light sleepers; the Walter Süskindbrug (bridge) is only accessible by foot or bicycle!

Architecture & History

From 1972 to 2017 the Walter Süskindbrug bridge house accommodated the city’s bridge keepers. In 2017 the bridge house started a new chapter as one of 28 suites for SWEETS hotel.

Architect 1972: Dirk Sterenberg
Architect 2017: Space&Matter
Architectural Style: Replica of a 16th-century bridge house
Location: Nieuwe Herengracht
Waterway: Amstel
Bridge: Drawbridge

The wooden Walter Süskindbrug (bridge) over Nieuwe Herengracht (canal) near the Hermitage (museum) looks old but was built in 1972. This double-leaf drawbridge is a replica of a bridge type that was common in the sixteenth century. This typically Dutch type of drawbridge is characterized by a sort of wooden gateway, the so-called ‘Hameipoort’, for pedestrians, cyclists and cars.

Next to the bridge is the control building in a matching historicist style, designed in 1972 by Dirk Sterenberg. The building has off-white painted elevations, the small windows are equipped with canopies and a pointed finial adorns the pyramid-shaped roof. Because the view from the building is restricted, the bridge was operated from a control lectern located outside.
