The easiest way to reach the bridge is via the Viaduct Courtayd Floo Flame!

The Bridge Puzzle is actually among the easiest puzzles you will find in the game! To complete this puzzle, you just need to have a Fire Spell available, such as Incendio or Confringo.

  1. Begin by lighting all four of the bridge pillars with either Incendio or Confringo.
  2. After each brazier is lit you will want to check the diagram on the bridge floor to see the correlation between each number and each image.
  3. Next, you will want to match each brazier’s number to its specific image. This can be done by interacting with the brazier by pressing either F/playstation square button/button xbox x v2, depending on whether you play on a PC or a Console.

Once all four braziers are aligned, you will see a completion cinematic, prompting you with a new set of challenges, the Solve Hogwarts Secrets Challenge. Once the cinematic finishes, all you have to do is approach the new-found trapdoor on the bridge and simply descend the stairs!

Once you enter the trapdoor and go down the stairs, you will want to use Revelio to uncover the Ornate Chest waiting for you in the archway and the two Collectible Chests!

(Remember to use the Save Trick to get the item type you want!)
