Usually at night, there are no folks around, you have a 360° of a medieval romantic buildings and structures, the river is dressed with round shape bulb lights, and there is no disturbing sound around, pick the right moment here, then it is all yours.

This is a great place to take a photo of the Graslei en Korenleih banks of the river Leie. The bridge itself is not that remarkable.

Nice chance for a photo, but basically just another bridge. Not alot of wow factor. Try early evening.

This is the place to be if you want those iconic pictures of Ghent's 3 towers. It also provides a lovely view of Graslei and Korenlei down below.

The charm of Ghent is captured while you stand on the bridge. Do not miss the opportunity to do so. It is easy to just stand there and watch the world go by and marvel at the architecture.

Don't miss crossing this bridge either and enjoying the views, and on your way if you want to visit Sint-Michielskerk.
