Owner description: Swings wide many times daily to allow access to one of the busiest ports in the world. It also separates the two halves of the city.

Lovely feature, practical too - splendid views of the waterfront. Fascinating to watch it open and close, as is the gentle swaying as you cross it (but nothing alarming!)

This is an interesting bridge which opens sideways when a ship goes thru.
If it's open, there is a ferry which whisks across for the pedestrians who don't want to wait. Great concept and a nice place to have it. Willemstad is a UNESCO heritage site so downtown by the water is very picturesque.

I had read about how amazing the floating bridge was while i researched the island. The first day we where the we went to the bridge and the veiw from the bridge was amazing but i did not see how it was so amazin till we where having dinner at a resurant that overlooked the bridge. The. We saw it move for a boat and knew it was a special bridge! I was amazed at how deep it must be where the bridge is becuase of the size of the ships we saw enter.

This bridge is a must see on the island!

It has a lot of history and it floats as you are walking along it. You can access the other side of the waterfront by walking across it.

The bridge closes when a ship is going to pass through, but you can take a ferry to get to the other side.

You CANNOT leave the island without stopping by for a quick visit.

Queen Emma bridge is a must to see once in Curacao. It moves with such elegance to allow the ships to pass by that it feels like a movable highway. The bridge offers the beautiful views of two parts of the city, Punda and Otrobanda and it is a great location to take a good pictures.
