About Qasr al-Nil Bridge

Evocatively spanning the River Nile, Qasr al-Nil Bridge links Downtown Cairo with Gezira Island and the affluent suburb of Zamalek. Completed in 1933 and stretching 1,932 metres, this steel bridge provides access to some of Cairo’s finest tourist sights and offers an expressive walk above Africa’s most famous river. It was originally named Khedive Ismail Bridge and is also known as Qasr El Nile Bridge.

As most vehicle traffic now uses the newer 6th October Bridge, it’s a pleasant journey over the bridge on foot. Lion statues stand over the entrance to the bridge, the work of French sculptor Henri Jacquemart. The road starts on the east bank at Tahrir Square, leading past the Mogamma government building to the Qasr- al-Nil Bridge entrance. Cross over the river, and the bridges meet the west bank of the Nile, where Opera Square and the sublime Cairo Opera House greet visitors on Gezira Island.

Qasr al-Nil Bridge is best seen on foot and is a favourite place for locals to walk during the evenings when the Nile’s waters glisten a golden colour in the sunset light. The broad pedestrian lanes provide great views and are next to multiple vehicle lanes. One popular option is to walk over to Gezira in the late afternoon, explore the charming area of Zamalek, then wander back over the bridge when it’s illuminated at night.

Qasr al-Nil Bridge stands on the site of Gezira Bridge, built in 1872. This original bridge was soon overwhelmed by donkey carts and camels, then by thousands of motor cars that flooded into Cairo in the early 20th century, prompting a new bridge to be built.
