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.

One can walk underneath and over St Michael's Bride and walk along the river which the bridge goes over. The Bridge goes to and from the centre Of Ghent and It is not far from St Michael's Church

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.

I was there in the evening and it was beautiful. The bridge is at walking distance from churches and beautiful buildings right in the city centre. There are bars and cafes all around and people relaxing along the channel where you can sit and enjoy the peaceful and charming sights. Great place where to take pictures.

Ghent is a hidden gem indeed. It was intended to be just a stopover on our return from the Netherlands to the Channel Tunnel. The bridge, town square, cathedral and numerous bars and cafe's are all within walking distance of this beautiful bridge. You can also take boat rides from the bridge.

If you stand on this bridge you can see the spires of the main historic buildings including the cathedral and the belfry. Would recommend taking a canal boat tour, very interesting and a different view of the city.

Its a nice bridge, good for a photo moment on the way to the castle or city centre. No different to the other bridges over channels in Europe.
