This is a beautiful bridge and a great photo location either direction showing some of the most spectacular architecture in the Ghent city center. Enjoy the view of Saint Michael's Church right next to this bridge. The church is only open in the summer.

Charming old bridge in the heard of Ghent. St. Michael's is on one side, an old square is on the other. There are many things around to do and eat. Great for people watching.

This is a place where you can have an incredible view of many of the most important places in Ghent, so please, do not miss it. Walk though it, see everyting you have to and enjoy it. There are some cafes around so you can see it for a longer time.
