Netherlands - St. Servatius Bridge


Stamp Issue : 1968-04-09 

St. Servatius Bridge is one of the oldest bridges in Netherlands. Built from 1280 to 1289 it crosses the Maas River in Maastricht from the old town to the new town. Today only pedestrians and bikers are able to cross the bridge.
The bridge has nine arches, 160 meter in length and originally built by the Romans. In 2006 they began renovations at the suface of the bridge embellishing it with new tiles and streetlights.
