“Real centre of the town”

This bridge is very close to all the major attractions in Ghent. This is actually the city centre. You can get the magnificient views of all important landmarks of Ghent. The bridge is very close to the major shopping and eating areas of Ghent

“Picture spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

If you've prepared well your walk through Gent, you won't miss it, I'm sure!
It's on the way to Korenmarkt, Graslei, and many other "must goes" in Gent.
... Naturally, don't forget to have the typical picture on the bridge, with Graslei on your back.

“Lovely views at night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

There are a number of lovely bridges, this was the closest to the tram and our hotel and was delightful at night as the surrounding buildings are lit up and it is like a fairy tale. There is always something going on down on the river and it was a lovely spot to people watch day or night.

“Great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

This bridge is one of the best places to admire some of the most typical landmarks in Ghent. As there are no cars, and with some imagination, you can imagine yourself back in the middle ages. Great for pictures!

“pretty little bridge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

A charming bridge over the canal with beautiful views of the three towers, cobbled quaintness. Photo opportunities down the canal too.
