St Michael's Bridge, Ghent

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Bridge Historic Walking Area
Enjoy one of the best views in the city from St Michael's Bridge, where you'll get a 360-degree perspective of the town's main attractions. These include the Old Fish Market, Castle of the Counts, and "Three Tower Row," all of which you can see in a panoramic cityscape. The pedestrian bridge is named for the church that resides on one end, recognizable for its large Gothic windows. A winged St. Michael watches over the pathway from the top of a lamppost. Don't be shy about asking one of the friendly locals to snap a photo of you on the bridge with the city in the background. Put St Michael's Bridge into our Ghent itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
