You can have a look at this nice old bridge but that is all you can do here. Nothing really extraordinary.

Kota Intan Bridge is a typical Dutch wooden bridge that still exist in the present day. The only remaining colonial drawbridge in Indonesia, Kota Intan was built by the Dutch in 1630. It looks similar to bridges built in Amsterdam. Nearby one can wonder along the Kalibesar Canal bank where it was the prosperous vein heart of the city until the turning of 20th century. The Kota Intan bridge is not used anymore but it was well renovated and it can be a stop on your way from Taman Fatahillah to Sunda Kelapa.

If you're nearby I would recommend to stop by and take a look at this interesting bridge. However, don't drive across town just to see it.

If you're in the old town already and want the full experience you have to go to the bridge or if you're Dutch.

Unfortunately it's now closed off and badly maintained, so you can only get a good view from the bridge right next to it.

Built by the VOC in 1628, the wooden draw bridge is remarkably in good condition. Goodness knows why its called "Kota Intan Bridge" ( Diamond City Bridge) as Jakarta is far from being a Diamond City . The DKI government should preserve this bridge. The younger generation should visit the bridge. A popular place visited by elderly tourists from Holland.

An integral part of every history-minded tourist's itinerary, this bridge is one of the few remaining examples of colonial Dutch civil engineering. It's surprisingly well maintained, presenting a striking contrast to its dilapidated surroundings. I would recommend a daytime visit, as the area seems unsafe after dark.

TA reviews do not seem too enthusiastic about this bridge, but I did include it on my day out after the museums had closed. It was quite nice lit up at night. Worth a visit if your nearby. Would agree with many who comment the river smells!

Worth a visit.

My friend and I walked from the museum section of Kota Tua to see this bridge. I want the 30 minutes of my life back that I spent walking there and back. It's not at all well kept and the creepy street we walked down to get there did not help with the atmosphere at all. We basically walked 15 minutes, looked at the bridge for 1 minute then walked 15 minutes back. Big waste of time. Do a drive by if you feel you MUST see it.

Yes the canal is gross, yes the area is a bit sketchy, yes it's a really old colonial drawbridge, maybe the last of its kind, certainly in Southeast Asia. But it's cool, if you're into old infrastructure then a must visit. It's not that far from the Kota Tua, stop and get some ice cream from one of the vendors and just don't look down at the canal.
