Six streets crisscross at Muntplein, creating one of the busiest intersections in the Netherlands. The junction is supported by a wide bridge. Muntplein Bridge is designated as one in the city’s numbering system for 1,500 bridges. In the background is De L’Europe Amsterdam. The five-star accommodations began as Hotel de l’Europe in 1896 and operated under that name until a rebranding in 2011. Historically, the Rondeel Tower was built on this site as part of the city defensive walls in 1535.
