St. Servaas Bridge: Oldest Bridge in the Netherlands

Oldest Bridge in the Netherlands


Oldest Bridge in the Netherlands

Built at the end of the 13th century, the St. Servaas bridge in Maastricht is the oldest bridge in the Netherlands. It replaced a Roman bridge which collapsed in 1275. After 1932, it received the name of the Patron Saint of Maastricht. Until that time it was the only bridge in the city and it was not necessary to give it a name.
Only pedestrians and bicycles are allowed on St. Servaas bridge, but it sees daily traffic due to its central location.
