We missed the opening the 1st day we were in the area. Then we were having a snack & happened to catch it. It was interesting but not really worth time to go out of your way to see. There's a cafe all along 1 side. If you're needing a drink or snack, plan to do it there so you have the best chance of seeing it.

We were on the bridge when it had to move to let a boat in. It was interesting to see it happening. Well maintained bridge.

Really enjoyed the historic value of the bridge. Its swaying movement as you walked along and its views of the port area were beautiful. The real highlight was the two times being on the bridge as it opened to make way for boats to pass by. If you are in a rush don't get caught on the bridge after the horns blow or you will be stuck for a 15 minute open and close ride!

Situated in the heart of Willemstad one can not miss the bridge.Our cruise ship docked next to it. Fantastic piece of engineering which is still vital to the city.

The heart of Willemstad is surely this bridge. Very recognizable and particularly nice if a large seagoing vessel has to pass when the bridge opens.

it is just a bridge - not sure why there is so much talk about this bridge. yes, the view of the colorful stores is nice, but even those are ruined by advertising on them

Oh my, this is the first bridge where you can stand on it and it moves whenever a boat has to pass through! Quite lovely! Beautiful sunset views as well as night light arches. Take a romantic stroll!

This is a must-see if you are looking for the local excursions of this island. The Queen Emma Bridge is one of the most well-known attractions of Curacao. Not only is it free, but it is beautiful and interesting. You can see the stunning Dutch buildings on both sides of the harbor, and can feel the bridge moving from underneath you, and is breathtaking at day time and nighttime. Well worth the visit to walk around the bridge and local shops.

Yes you have to visit and walk over this bridge. Together with the few colorful houses you need no more Han an hour in the area.
