Beyond this bridge, you’ll find the National Museum of Ethnology, a celebration of artifacts from science, the arts, and daily life. At 15 euros per ticket (less for kids & elderly) check their website first to see if it’s your thing, and then allow a couple of hours to see it.
Moving on, continue south past the museum on Binnenvestgracht through a leafy brick street to the Morchpoort, a picturesque city gate from the 1600s that leads directly to the Morschbrug bridge – a perfect place for selfies.
Then turn right around and continue down Morsstraat, a narrow, Renaissance-era brick pathway lined with cute shops, relaxed cafes, and small businesses. After half a kilometer you’ll find yourself on the Blauwpoortsbrug – a wide, open area featuring a beautiful harbor with docks, boats, and restaurants. It is here that you can take a lovely canal tour on the water – generally about 10 euros a head and well worth it if you have the time.
