come see at night or dusk ; from the bridge down, bridge constructed for the 1912 world exhibition , together with the former post office building on your left hand side which is now a shopping mall. On the left also a beautiful view on the river through which went Ghent's early riches

The best spot by far at ground level to take in and photograph the highlights of Ghent. We had to cross to get to and from our apartment and found the views captivating on every occasion. Can be busy but that is part of the charm. Serious photographers set up here for their feature shots of Ghent by day, at... More

The views from St. Michael's Bridge are priceless. Exploring the small church and the hostel on the shores enhance the experience. If you are in the center of Ghent, you can't miss it, so don't.

Stand on the bridge and look back towards the Church, Belfrey and Cathederal. One of the only palces in Ghent where you can get a picture of all 3 towers together.

This neo-gothic bridge named St Michael's Bridge is quite attractive thanks to the river Leie going under it. What I like the most is that I can see the St Nicolas Church, the Belfry, the St. Bavo’s Cathedral, the Gravensteen, the Old Fish Market, as well as the guild houses. I couldn’t help but stop myself on that bridge and... More
