Queen Emma Floating Bridge

The Queen Emma Floating Pontoon Bridge connects the Punda and Otrobanda districts of Willemstad, the capital of Curacao in the Netherlands Antilles in the southern Caribbean. Built in 1888 and named after Queen Emma (1890-1898), it is one of the oldest and longest floating bridges still in operation for non-military use. Also known as the Swinging Old Lady, the bridge swings open using two powerful ship motors, allowing ships to access the port and inner harbor. When the bridge is open to let ships from the harbor pass, pedestrians are transported free of charge by the ponchi, a small ferry.
