From here you have a beautiful view on the graslei and the korenlei, where you can go sit in the sun and enjoy the weather and the touristic views, just like the students of Ghent during the year. Also a lot of good bars in the neighbourhood. And don't forget the majestic cathedrals nearby.

I have spent almost my entire life in Ghent City and although sometimes I am sick and tired it wouldn't be fair to try and give this majestic bridge an objective review. I love the view on top of the bridge of the half finished St. Michielschurch, the lights and romantic atmosphere at night looking over the water in the... More

Magnificient landscape from this point of Gent. You can sight the 3 towers ahead and on the left the Graslei and the Castle and on the right hand side (presuming you are walking towards the 3 towers) you have got more Graslei and Sint Michael Church.

Just a joy to be here. During the music festival the place is just so vibrant and fun. The Belgian people are the friendliest you would care to meet and they are genuinely proud of their city and so pleased that we chose to visit.

It's the best place to take a nice photo for Gent river and the centre. I myself live 10 min walking from it and I still adore seeing it every day.

The canals...the gable houses...the churches and the Belfry. You can see so much from just this one spot including St. Nicholas's Church, St. Michael's AND St. Baaf's Cathedral!

The view is probably great. However there was a lot of construction being done on the waterfront area to probably make it look amazing. Not much more to say as there are a few bridges in a row you can take.

This is the most beautiful bridge in Ghent mainly for the views. Look along the river at the historical buildings that have served this city for centuries. Then look toward the city centre with its cobbled streets and Cathedrals. Ghent is a wonderful city for walking and this is a bridge you will visit and re visit whilst you are... More
