By day, by night, in the morning, in mid afternoon, it does not matter. You will get a lovely photo. Everyone loved our photos of the bridge. We spent a lovely Sunday afternoon on a boat ride and it seemed like everyone in town was out in this area enjoying the weather, not just tourists. Very nice.

What can you say about a bridge? It connects two parts of town. The whole town is gorgeous, old and charming. It is definitely a picture spot.

Romantic & great to stand. Watching the world go by from the pavements. Night time views are wonderfully atmospheric too.

As we left our hotel and walked to the town center, we turned the corner and behold, The Bridge! It was evening and all the buildings were lit up! Facing us was a view grander than Disney World. In front were St. Nicholas Church, the Belfry, and St. Bravo's towers. Over looking the bridge was the beautiful Graslei & Korenlei... More

The view and photo opportunity from the bridge is magnificent! When the water is still the reflection of the buildings is amazing. You have a great view of the towers as well. Be sure to make this one of your stops.

Ghent is our favorite city in Belgium, and this is the place to enjoy it all. Just a great place to walk off all those Belgium waffles you just had to taste. The bridge, whether from the quay and on it, is a photographer's Disneyland. Again, you can see it all from here. Enjoy

Great spot in city to capture the beauty of Ghent. You will have the waterway and many cathedrals to surround you. It is a must visit if you are in Ghent . Very easy to get to and then you can walk go down some stairs and walk along the waterway.

There's a great view from the bridge onto the "Graslei", which is one of the most beautiful places in Ghent, especially at night, when everything is nicely lit up. You can see the Gravensteen castle a bit further.

Such a lovely vista.. Especially with the Christmas market on the other side.. Walking over it and looking at the amazing buildings gave such a feeling of history..
