This beautiful bridge is for pedestrians only. Use this bridge to walk across river Nervión and perhaps go to Guggenheim Museum. Great spot for taking photos. You also get great views of the river from both sides. Believe it or not, Nervión was considered one of the most polluted rivers in the world in the early 1900s. Now it is... More

Went here with two engineering types who found this bridge interesting to see from the side, from on top and from below. They tried to explain how it worked to me but it was a bit beyond me. I just thought it was a nice bridge from which to view the river and the town and surrounds.

Signed by a famous architect, this beautiful white bridge gives a note of color to the Bilbao estuary. Very convenient to cross from Nervión 's one side to the other. Very well located, you will see it without a stroll through one of the most beautiful areas of the city, Abandoibarra.

Calatrava's bridge is an elegant link across the river. Should have a glass floor too but glass is slippery and a rubber mat has been placed over. Safety first but in fact it doesn't detract from the overall elegance of the bridge

It looks nice and follows the trend of jazzing-up the image of cities with this fashionable bridges ! Like many other of them, problems with the reality , unpractical details, over-rated, over-priced and Lametta-architecture !My proposal: let's Calatrava pass those bridges at least 10 times a day to have not just another notch in the personal reference-list !

This may have been revolutionary when it was built but it is rather mundane today. I am not sure whether it suffers from heavy use or poor construction or poor design but the material is badly cracking in many locations.

This is a nice way to cross the river, always people around, some couples just stand and hug, it is quite pleasant.

It's typical Calatrava: white, string-y, and dangerous in rainy days, slippery as the floor is made out of glass. The area is beautiful though, and its view from afar away is good.

Zubizuri is marked on the tourist maps and it is worthy of that, being a spectacular addition to the riverscape. It may not be universally liked by architects but it does reflect the resurrection of the declining industrial setting into an attractive place. With steps and ramps from the riverside walkways it is an easy stroll for pedestrians spanning the... More
