This is a typical Calatrava shape. It provides a pedestrian crossing at a convenient point , especially for those who want to use the Artxanda funicular on the north bank of the river. If you have time, try to visit at night, as the illumination is very appealing.

Wandering along the river promenade towards the Guggenheim Museum from the Casco Viejo we got our first glimpse of Zubi Zuri (White Bridge). Design in 1997 as a pedestrian bridge, it crosses the River Nervion. It is very elegant, white, access to the bridge is via a set of stairs or a ramp at either end, the path across the... More

Such a beautiful city for a stroll around ... There is lots to see and do but a meander along the river bank on a Sunday morning is quite tranquil . The Zubi Zuri spans the river and is quite majestic in its form. Music can be heard from the odd busker on the bridge and it carries on down... More

Beautifully designed and constructed pedestrian bridge across the Nervion River. Close to the Guggenheim museum and once you cross it and walk along the other shore you get a very good view of the complete Guggenheim.

The bridge is quite beautiful and you will see it when walking anywhere near the Guggenheim. Take the time to walk across it as the views are quite amazing especially at night. Take your camera!

Hardly worth a detour. But, when I passed by on my way to the Guggenheim, I was captivated. I cannot, for the life of me, figure how the forces are captured and directed in such a way as to allow the structure to stand. Clearly they have bee, but it baffled at least this mortal.

For a small city, Bilbao does public spaces right. This bridge is unique and a great asset to the riverfront. A walk across is a must for an afternoon walk.

We stayed at Hotel Miro and used this bridge to cross the river to head to the old town. Quite a nice modern bridge and okay for wheelchair access too.

A masterful piece of design, well worth trekking over both day and night! Not only a beautiful thing but a well used transport route by the locals. Make a point in crossing at night.
