Stroll Across the Historic Queen Emma Bridge

There are few better perspectives from which to view Curaçao’s historic capital, Willemstad, than from Queen Emma Bridge, a pedestrian bridge that connects the historic districts Punda and Otrobanda. The bridge is an ideal vantage point for viewing the candy-colored historic homes of Handelskade, one of the island’s most photographed scenes, along the Punda waterfront. Also known as the “Pontoon Bridge” or the “Swinging Old Lady,” Queen Emma Bridge (built circa 1888) sits on 16 pontoon floats that can swing open when needed, allowing vessels to enter and exit St. Anna Bay.
