A moving bridge at the entrance of the bay is unusual for any outside visitors..It is a must on your first visit to the island.. Something to see and walk across.Nice place to take pictures

The Queen Juliana Bridge is a must see when in Curaçao! Walking across the bridge is such a cool experience! It truly offers one of the best views of the city. The only reason this review did not get 5 stars is because the bridge seems to spend more time closed than open. We had to take a ferry from... More

Curacao has a great downtown area and the bridge is a very unique site. Especially nice when lit up at night.

Fascinating to see from the market area of Willemstaad and just as neat to drive on and see for miles. A fair amount of older negative feelings directed to the destruction of local history and culture that occurred in order to build the bridge. Worth checking out.

The bridge links the two sides of the bay: Punda and Otrobanda. It is quite high and all in steel. I did not cross it. However our ship passed underneath it. The bridge is interesting because it is very high , but that's it. As for me a bridge is a bridge.

Crosses the eyeline over Willenstad below. Major arterial linking west and east Curacao. Soars, is beautiful in its own way. High enough for huge tanker water traffic to pass fro the inner basin on its way to the Americas, e.g. Panama. You can walk across Emma's swing bridge or take the Ferry instead to get around Willemstad.

I would like to say that I am no fan of big bridges and heights. I went over once (I hid on the floor of the cab) with my husband, who likes that sort of thing, and he even said it was a little scary. My point is, - for those of you who hate this like I do -... More

This bridge is so high that most ships can pass under it and when you drive over it you will be amazed at the view.

A novel means of transport. I come from Manitoulin Island, Ont., Canada and it also has a 100 year old swing bridge.

The views from the top was impressive. It was a good decision to cross this bridge and see the other side of town. Very colorful views and I felt like I was in a ferris wheel while on top. We can see clearly views of Punda and Otrabanda. Really a great experience. Two things I learned about this bridge ;... More
