The bridge serves as a practical srructure in a city that is so walkable and as an attractive architectural statement against the beautiful architecture backdrop of Bilbao. The bridge is hard to miss if you spend even a few hours visiting the city

While visiting the city of Old Bilbao had a chance encounter with this bridge. On a single arch the whole bridge is suspended and gives a unique feel and character to this whole place. It is told that earlier this bridge had a glass/ plexiglass walk way but due to surface becoming slippery during monsoons it was replaced with conventional... More

Is a nice walking bridge. Very pleasant to cross. In the museum side of the bridge there is a tram station.

From an architectural standpoint, the bridge fits very well into Bilbao's wonderful and artistic Riverfront. The bridge has what appears to be a blue-green glass surface. That surface has, for some reason, been covered with a cheap-looking raggedy grey carpet-like surface that is both ugly and unpleasant to walk upon. Still, this is a highly recommended attraction.

It is a phenomenal piece of art across the Nervion River. It is also very functional, especially if you go to Guggenheim by feet.

Staying in Bilbao must include a wander over this elegant piece of art that happens to be a bridge. Go over towards the old city on a sunday, buy some flowers at the market and then towards a pitxos bar for rabas. The bridge is easy to find when you want to go over to the other side of the... More

I enjoyed the sweeping curves that reflect the course of the river, the curve of the surrounding hillsides and the class of the Guggenheim. I can also understand why the architect was so miffed about a later addition of a link bridge over to the adjacen office blocks.

From a distance this is a fine piece of architecture, unfortunately the council have ruined the look by gluing a black rubber matt over the glass the whole way across the bridge.

Slightly spoiled by the addition of mats to the deck but this was unavoidable as the original glass was not safe when wet. Well worth walking across, especially in the evening.
