Palace bridge

more than a year ago
During the past decade the most discussed bridge in the Netherlands has to be the Paleisbrug. The 'Palace Bridge', which opened in May 2015, certainly does justice to its rather exalted name, as its price tag of nearly €18 million makes it one of the most expensive bridges ever built in the Low Countries. Although we have to admit that it’s a beautiful piece of architecture, its poor functionality still makes little sense to the citizens of Den Bosch. According to the designers this 250m-long park-style pedestrian bridge is the 'perfect transport modus between the historical old town and the modern Paleiskwartier'. However, with free wi-fi, heated floors (!) and lots of green spaces, there are worse spots to kill a few hours on a sunny day.
