Super cool

This is a really cool feat of engineering! Listen for the bells cause that means it's about to open! I was lucky enough to experience it opening up to let boats pass by. So cool!

Late at night, if the bridge is unavailabel to pedestrians, the ferry to cross to the other side may take up to 30 mins to come

Worth to see the bridge is opening. Nice to walk a cross the harbor. How ever there is just the bridge, nothing more.

Saw this bridge open and let a yacht through with pedestrians on the bridge! Was interesting and pedestrians didn't seem to mind. Was fun to walk across as it bobs up and down in the water.

Took a day tour, shopping and was fortunate to experience this wonderful location, perfect for capturing the beauty of curacao's Multi-Coloured architecture. Very vibrant colors sure to bring a smile to your face. The moving bridge was awesome as well, spent a lot of time watching it move lol. FUN FUN FUN !!!

As with most tourists, had to walk the bridge when we were downtown strolling & shopping. Watched it in action a couple of times, and once when it was open we used the ferry to cross the channel.

The Queen Emma pedestrian footbridge is one of the points linking the Punda district to the Otrobanda district. It opens to let pedestrians cross several times a day. It is only closed when a vessel needs to pass through.

Historic. Very nice view of the ocean and the city, very colorful view. Interesting history, pretty hot, but was one of the must nice Island I did like. Very clean too.

I didn't know before I went to Curacao that this bridge moved! Fun to watch or even to be on the bridge as it moves!
