Another definite place to visit while in curacao, this bridge connects to 2 sides of the harbor inlet. Awesome to be on while it moves to let boat pass

We walked across to see the shops on the other side. The bridge offers a beautiful view. Later, we watched as folks got stuck on the bridge when it moved aside for a boat to pass by. There's a warning horn, but it's. It really enough of a warning to make the entire length of the bridge so you either... More

This bridge connects two of the major sections of town. While it is very old (built in the 1800's) it remains a working bridge, which we found out as it opened while were standing on it!

When we arrived at the Queen Emma Pontoon bridge it had just begun to swing back towards our side of the channel. It was interesting to watch. The walk across was fun due to the choppy waters in the channel pitching the bridge up and down.

Really enjoyed the opening of the bridge to allow the various boats go through. It connects the cruise port to the central part of Willemstad. Terrific when lit up at night.

Lovely spot for a stroll, they close this late and then getting back on Punda side? Good luck with that. Overall, this is a nice place to stroll just realize it's constrained by a gate during certain hours.

Our cruise ship was here for a full day and did not leave until 11pm. This bridge is so pretty at night. Definitely worth a look around the town after dark.

We went into Willemstad specifically to see this bridge. It didn't disappoint. We saw one small boat go threw and it was neat to watch how quick and efficient they work! Worth going to see.

NIce and funny floating bridge, that can swing aside to make room for large ships. Interesting solution to the problem.
