If you can arrange that a tour guide drops you of at the one side of the bridge and pick you up on the other, you'll have a great experience if you walk across. If you do the same by car however, you might get another thrilling experience, but than from the kind you'd have rather not.

Very good road and bridge. On one side you can see Punda and Otrobanda (beauty) and from the other side of the bridge as you cross over it, you see the oil refinery and the ugly evidence of industry. Our cabbie fittingly called it the "beauty and the beast."

Fun to travel over and fun to twist around getting to the other areas such as Punda. If you have never driven it watch carefully as the lanes end abruptly.

This bridge was the one that replaced the pontoon bridge for moving cards from Otrabanda to Punda/Scharloo and back. It's a nice looking bridge, simple and unassuming, but not as decorative as say Tower bridge or as mystifying as the Golden Gate bridge, so you can take a photo or two of it and then just move out I say....

This is a remarkable looking bridge that towers over the landscape. It connects the east and west sides of the island on the southern half. Visible from a huge distance, it can still be a bit difficult to find the entry to.

This isn't really an "attraction". It is though the main road access from one side of the bay to the other. Views as you drive across are good to both the harbour and down to Willhelmstaat. It is an impressive structure when viewed from the town.

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
