Hellingbrêge Woudsend


If you sail or drive through the beautiful center of Woudsend, you will undoubtedly come across the high Hellingbrêge.

Even for cars and cyclists passing through Woudsend, there's no escaping it: the bridge in De Dyk is the only place in the center of Woudsend where you can go from one side of the water to the other. But it's always pleasant here with all those boats, so it's not at all bad to have to wait a bit!

The name of the bridge is well-chosen, as it forms a considerable slope in the otherwise flat Frisian landscape.

Bridge dimensions:

Height: 2.50 meters (when closed)
Width: 7.99 meters

Do you have a large boat? No worries: this bridge can be opened. Check the Watersport app of the Provinsje Fryslân for the operating times of this and other bridges.
