Queen Juliana Bridge

Queen Juliana Bridge is a four lane road bridge across St. Anna Bay in Willemstad, the capital of Curaçao. The bridge is named after Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. The original bridge collapsed in 1967 and its replacement, the current bridge, opened on Queen’s Day, (April 30) 1974.

Reaching a height of 56.4 m (185 feet) above the water at its apex (to accommodate ships entering the narrow harbour), the bridge is one of the highest in the world. It weighs 3,400 tons.

The view from the apex includes the entire panorama of Punda, Otrobanda, and the Schottegat and is the highest vantage point on the island.
