This beautiful bridge was built for an international fair and became a major route across the city's river. Now you can stroll across it and enjoy the canal houses. It has an historic basis.

When in Ghent for a few hours on our way to the F1 at Spa we took a walk across St. Michael's Bridge, a monumental stone arch bridge over the River Leie built around 1909. The bridge is the work of architect Louis Cloquet.

Views from the bridge are fabulous and give great tourist photo opportunities. You can see the Graslei and Korenlei with Gravensteen Castle further off. As well as the three Ghent towers: St Nicholas' Church, the Belfry of Ghent and the St. Bavo's Cathedral. It really is a great place to get a snapshot of beautiful historic Ghent (Gent). Well worth a visit.

Charming bridge set on Ghent's main canal very touristy and busy but we'll worth a visit everything you need to see is compacted in this area , we stayed in a hotel just outside the emissions zone and caught the number eight bus to the center for around four Euros return .

We had a quick stop in Ghent, and this was one of the places we wanted to see! It’s worth the visit, as the views of the city are awesome from this bridge! I wish we had more time in Ghent, but glad we got to see this landmark before leaving!

This is one of the larger bridges that cross Leie in downtown Ghent. Many tourists come for Instagram photo of the Belgian city's signature canal. The stone bridge itself forms a nice landscape with the river.

It is a nice bridge spanning the river. Architecture is pleasant to the eye. Lovely arch and reflections in the canal.

St Michael's bridge paid for by the brewers of Ghent and named after their patron saint is a Ghent landmark in the centre of the city. Situated by all the other main attractions it forms in my opinion one of the most picturesque city centers in Europe.

Super views towards the city centre and, to the left, Graslei. A busy place for keen photographers.

This bridge was built to modernize the center before the 1913 World Expo. It helped traffic flow. Now it is graceful and a good place to come because it is in the center of many historic buildings. Everything looks good here. Lots of places to sit and drink.
