The bridge is one of the most important historical monuments in Ghent. It is also a great place to take pictures. The bridge has a great view of Graslei and korenlie.

The bridge overlooks Graslei and Korenlei - two of the most scenic streets (and there are many!) in Ghent. It is quite busy but beautiful to look at. The whole area is car free too so you can mostly amble around without a worry. The four church spires can also be lined up here for a classic photo. Very nice... More

Visited Ghent for the first time and our hotel wasn't far away. On the way into the city center this was the first bridge we crossed which goes over the canal. Interesting to take pictures and also night time pictures. Buildings in the near are also very interesting for a taking some nice photos.

I love the view of the city from this bridge. If you're lucky and catch a sunny day, you will get the most awesome photos from this bridge.

Right at the center of the historical town, you get great views of the top sights of Ghent. Close to everything and it is free.

is possible from the St Michael's Bridge, especally on a sunny day. You can have the St Baafs Cathedral, the Belfroi and the St Michael-spitze all on one spectacular photograph. That means a unique shot of the heart of the splendid city of Ghent. Just do it !

This is the place not to miss if you want to haveall the 4 towers of churches in a picture. At night, it is more romantic.

One of the best views of Ghent's Medieval buildings can be enjoyed from St. Michael's Bridge. The bridge is located just a short walk from Ghent's churches and cathedrals and provides a fantastic point for beautiful photo opportunities. We were there on a lovely sunny spring day and it is a magical place both in daylight and at night.

As described the bridge is not that big, but the view is amazing. Especially on a nice sunny day with a blue sky behind the churches
