Take your time on your approach, it looks fabulous from any angle but once you set foot on the bridge the off-centre design and simplicity of it will hopefully make you stop and look. It is beautiful, so look up, down, take it all in!

When in Bilbao, one should certainly take a walk on this bridge, not only for the nice views but also because it feels almost like walking on "cushions" :-)

Love this bridge, I don't like heights and this didn't bother me. Very modern and fun to walk over to the other side of the river.

Great aesthetics but I don't think Calatrava, this world-wide famous architect, will be doing anything more in Bilbao, ever! Both his bridge and his airport were a fiasco in therms of usability...

We walked over this bridge several times during our stay in Bilbao. Weither it be walking to the guggenheim museum or just to do some shopping we always found ourselves crossing here. The modern design is provoking to the senses while its cool design fits perfectly in this artsy city.

Sounds daft to say that, but it is there in your face tempting you after you have walked past the Guggenheim museum. Striking archetecture

Its worthwhile to pay a visit to this bridge, it is very nice. Access ramps and stairways are located on both banks and it offers pedestrians a convenient route from hotels to the nearby Bilbao Guggenheim Museum. The bridge is designed by architect Santiago Calatrava opened in 1997.
