You have to stop and take a look at the city, standing on this bridge. Close to the famous 3 towers, but also close to 'Graslei' with many restaurants, hotels and cafés and so much. Enjoy the view and take your best pictures!

The bridge is nothing extremely special itself, but it offers fantastic views and vistas of Ghent's UNESCO town centre. Countless photos have been taken on this bridge that leads you into the historic heart of the city.

I crossed this bridge several times when checking out St. Michael's Church and the River Boat ride. Walking back to the City Center, I admired the spires, towers, and churches. Best location to take Selfies here!
