Great Views

Very central. It's likely you'll pass this way without even seeking it out. Great river views, and the perfect place to get a snapshot of Ghent.

This bridges is situated in the middle of Gent`s city centre. Enjoy the view or take photos from the top of the bridge. I also recommend looking around after sunset, because the city lights have magnificient atmosphere.

A very picturesque view from the bridge - especially at sunset. It is in the heart of the old city and easy to access.

Not far from anywhere in Ghent, and well worth wandering to. Great views of the riverside buildings, and most tall attractions, and becomes differently spectacular at night.

Combined with the other walks in the city center this bridge provides nice views. The Gravensteen castle is only a couple blocks away.

It is one of the best views of Ghent. Walk from St-Michaels to Korenmarkt and enjoy! The view is great, day and night.

Even after living in Ghent for almost 20 years I still stop each time I cross sint Michael's bridge (st michielshelling) to admire the city. A place to take wonderful pictures from, but also to stop and just look and look again and again and again.

From this bridge you can see the 3 Towers of Gent : St. Nicolas Church, the Belfry and St. Bavo Cathedral. But, it's not all, you see also the Korenlei and Graslei and at the end, you see the Gravenkasteel, this is the Castle of the Counts of Flanders from the year 1180
