  The famous view from St. Michiels Straat
by DrewV

To best enjoy the three towers, you really ought to view them from atop the Sint-Michielsstraat Bridge. This view is the "official" view of Ghent, the one found in 75% of the postcards sold in the city.

Hopefully, the bridge won't be crowded when you gape up at the stately spires. Also, be prepared to stare through electric streetcar cables. If you can look past the wires, you'll agree that this view alone makes a trip to Ghent worthwhile.
