Nice bridge with a central location. Nice views of city center, canal and multiple churches. You can take a picture with the 3 church steeples in the background. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby.

One of my favourite bridge for pictures of the Belfry Tower in the background. Popular with tourists and easy to find.

Its a bridge so nothing spectacular to the bridge itself but it is old and lovely, and offers great photo opportunities. If you go to Ghent you will definitely cross it.

As it goes for bridges this one isn't that great but the views of the city that you can get here are what you want to go for. It is very photogenic for pics of the city or selfies/group photos.

The bridge itself is not particularly noteworthy, however it is a nice place to take photos of Ghent and of the canal. The walking tour starts from the hostel right next to this bridge.

The bridge provides superb view of Ghent and all the 3 historical towers of Ghent. Very beautiful and great place for capturing yourself with the 3 towers of Ghent.

Luckily, our hotel was on one side of this bridge so we got to cross it several times. It seems to be oldes, most historic bridge in Ghent and the views up the Leie are beautiful

Named after the St.Michael’s church near the bridge, this is perfect spot to have a selfie with the three towers, old fish market and Gravensteen Castle.

Usually at night, there are no folks around, you have a 360° of a medieval romantic buildings and structures, the river is dressed with round shape bulb lights, and there is no disturbing sound around, pick the right moment here, then it is all yours.

Hi nikita g, You can indeed take any train anytime you want. But just at the weekends. If you buy a normal ticket during weekdays, you can be onboard only after 9:00 AM.
