"visiting..." Netherlands Antilles Favorite Tip by Tetreus

Netherlands Antilles General: 33 reviews and 21 photos

Favorite thing: visiting Willemstad.
Willemstad is divided in two regions; Punda and Otrabanda.
Punda and Otrabanda are connected with two bridges. One big bridge is called the Queen Juliana bridge.
Queen Juliana is the former Queen of Holland.
There is also a little pontjesbridge, called the Queen Emmabridge. Queen Emma is the mother of Queen Juliana.
This little pontjesbridge can be open and closed. Opening is happening by floating the little pontjes ( ponteen ) towards a direction.
While opening, this can take some time, people can go with a ferry to the other side of the city.

Pictures are coming !
