My hostel sits along this bridge. I love looking out its windows to the view of the bridge with the canals and old buildings.

This is a point where you absolutely have to go by night. Many photographers will be there sharing the moment with you.

Worth standing on the bridge and looking over to the bsnks where you can see the lovely sights of Ghent. Boat rides from below the bridge if you choose to do so but for me the view of Graslei and Koreniei make this a must do.

Standing on the bridge, overlooking upon the river or take some photos of magnificent builders on both ends are worthwhile. Most of good-view restaurants locate around here.

A must do. This is a picture perfect, a view you're simply not allowed to miss ! The Graslei and Korenlei are the monumental proof of the wealth and power the merchant's city of Ghent disposed of in the medieval times.

Good place to get pictures of Gent, and it's completely Free. You can also get a boat ride around Gent from below the bridge.

Standing on the bridge you get a picture post card view of the 3 towers, castle of the counts and the old fish market. Halfway across the bridge is a bronze statue of St Michael. Good place for a selfie too!

Not the longest or widest bridge in the world, but one that offers beautiful views of Gent nonetheless. A definite 'must' for all tourists, particularly those who enjoy photography. There are lots of lovely waterside cafes and restaurants nearby to continue enjoying and soaking up the views.
