Pelserbrugje

This is the "Pelserbrugje", from which yesterday´s photo was taken. The Pelserbrugje (Little Pelser Bridge) is a drawbridge for pedestrians and cyclists across the Thorbecke Canal in Zwolle.


The bridge was built in 1974 and was named after the "pelsers" ("pels" is Dutch for fur, a "pelser" is an old Dutch word for someone who processes fur) who worked in this area in the 15th century.

  1. Bridges are always fascinating to see Marleen, so many different purposes. So this bridge would pull up to let ships through?
