“Get your camera ready!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

The best aspect of this old old bridge is that it is one of the best places from which to take photos of the surrounding buildings and canals. So get your camera ready and snap away!

“Nice place for sightseeing the towers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

It is the nicest place to get a picture of the graslei and the three towers (St. Nicholas church, Belfort tower and St. Bavons cathedral). If you can go during night it is also awesome view of the canals and the towers

“Medieval”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Passing this bridge you have the feeling you are walkimg straight into the Middle Ages. It made me think of Kingsbridge in Ken Follet's novels.

“Beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Right in the heart of Gent, near the Kornmarkt, you can't miss St. Michael's Bridge. Be sure to go underneath and walk along the canal toward the castle. The best waffle stand will be on your right, just after the guy selling the "Noses of Gent" (jelly filled candies).

“Pretty Bridge with nice views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This area has great views from every angle. Just go stand on the bridges and start taking pics. You can see a nice row of Churches, Cathedrals and spires.
