On this bridge you get the best view of the canal- Gravensteen Castle, and 3 churches as well as the Town Hall. Cannot miss standing on the bridge and looking around!

During our walking tour, the view here was definitely the best in Ghent. The quaint buildings lining the canal, the water and the bridge itself make a beautiful combination.

It's like having the best seat in a theatre. You can see all historical center from this point, see its variety of styles, its size and really helps in orientation. Don't forget to make loads of images for facebook and instagram.
