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.

  • In the Centre, in the main square, it has the characteristic to admire the three towers of churches in the surrounding area, as well as allowing a fabulous view of the river and features Flemish houses. Great for a souvenir photo in one of the most frwquentati by tourists.

  • Just a beautiful old bridge, from which a magnificent view. In Ghent such a lot. But once you have already arrived and not too lazy to walk to the Centre, why not walk yet, and that is why the bridge?
