How Geocaching Works

Usually when geocaching, you get to see new and interesting places you probably would not have seen otherwise, and that is one of the great things about this hobby.
But what if you are short of time when visiting a new town, and want to see the main tourist attractions and do some geocaching as well?
Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge)
One of Amsterdam’s many bridges is the beautiful Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge). This wooden drawbridge was once so narrow that it was hard for two pedestrians to pass each other. To cope with increasing traffic on the Amstel, a wider bridge replaced the narrow original in 1871.
Romantic bridge In the evenings, the charming Magere Brug is very popular with couples and photographers. Thousands of lights romantically illuminate it at night, making the Magere Brug one of the most beautiful bridges in Amsterdam.
