At first it's just a bridge...

yet, if you are lucky enough (like we were), the bridge needed to open for a couple passing boats; so we got to see it swing open sideways. Pretty cool!

A walkable floating bridge that takes you to and from Otrabanda and Punda without having to drive around the main bridge

Very cool and extremely high bridge. Great place to look at from a distance and there's an even better view of the city when we were on it. We will definitely recommend

Another amazing piece of engineering in Willemstad, the bridge stretches high over the waters, linking Otrabanda to Punda, the two halves of the city. The view from the bridge is breathtaking on the ocean side, encompassing the capital's architecture and the channel diving it.

The cruise ship docked and you could see this very high and modern bridge. It was in such contrast to the old world charm of Willemstad, Curacao. This may be the highest bridge that i was ever on so I was glad when our tour used it to get to our destinations. The views of Willemstad and the cruise ship... More

Fun to watch the bridge move to make way for passing boats. At night the bridge is lit up with different colors. As you walk from side to side, you have a great opportunity to take photos of both sides of Williamstad.

There are several bridges in the world taller than this one- I do not really understand why the locals are so proud of this particular bridge. I mean the floating bridge they have at the entrance of the port is much - mch more interesting

The Queen Juliana Bridge offers a wonderful view of Willemstad and I recommend that every visitor should traverse it while visiting. In addition to providing a link across the harbor it is a very attractive bridge and adds to the beauty of the city. Unfortunately the floating bridge was under repair while we were there so we will have to... More
