This is a very unique floating bridge. It is fun to watch it open and close. You never know what kind of ship will sail into the harbour.

The people bridge of the Harbor, which before 1974 was also the vehicle bridge. Built on pontoons like a hundred years ago, it swings aside for the many freighters that come in and out of the harbor. We have come here four times and never...More

This is one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. It's a floating pontoon bridge that swings like a door and retracts depending on how large the vessels are that are crossing. You can stay on the bridge when it opens. Keep in...More

We got stuck on the bridge for about 10 mins, not understanding the signage or the horn blowing warning of the bridge opening. It is an amazing sight and experience. The next night we watched from shore as the bridge fully opened to allow a...More

Very pretty views from the Queen Wilhelmina Bridge while visiting Curacao. The weather was very sunny and bright. You can see the water and you can go from one side of the island to the other side. Very nice time there!

This is one of the highlights of a visit to Punda and Otrobanda.. Fun to stroll along enjoying the views of the Juliana bridge, and the Annabaai.

Our cab drove us over this bridge taking us from the cruise ship into town to look around. It is pretty neat- but not a huge attraction

This is a foot bridge connecting Punda and Otrobanda (literally"the other side") districts of Willemstad. Crossing it offers up tremendous photo opportunities as well as the somewhat novel experience of walking along a bridge which moves up and down with the swell of the sea....More
