The "wondrous" aspect of this bridge that spans the Elbe is its construction. It is one of the first steel suspension bridges in the world requiring no supporting piers in the water.

Don't get to excited. Its just a bridge. It is beautiful but its not Prague like views on one side or the other.

This bridge is an all metal structure that spans the Elbe from Schillerplatz to Grundstrasse. We accessed it on the Hop on Hop Off city Bus tour, but you can use public transportation too. The area on both sides is full off stores and especially...More
