St Michael's Bridge, Ghent

(4.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • From the bridge there is a nice view of Ghent. You can see all the towers. It is as if it were an entrance to the town of Ghent.

  • Really impressive building. Are you intrested in old architecture you should not miss this cathedral. 
  • 連結廣場和教堂的橋樑,同時也是根特拍照的首選位置,往北面向著名的香草岸&穀物岸,往東可以看到聖尼可拉斯教堂,往西可以看到聖米歇爾教堂,晚上時橋上站著數位攝影愛好者在拍照
