Create an itinerary including St Michael's Bridge
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. Using our custom trip planner, Ghent attractions like St Michael's Bridge can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
