On the way to the railway station Reichenau I cross the Schwarza on a pedestrian bridge with filigree iron construction. The view of the nearby mountains makes me want to go climbing. The lanterns on the bridge remind me, however, that I am still in a valley on the grounds of a famous spa town in the era of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. [German]
While taking the tour around the Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale) I crossed the Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri). Standing inside the bridge I took this pic. In former times, prisoners went via this bridge to their cells. So this view of Venice was probably their last one, for a long time.
Longshot of the Marienbrücke taken from a balcony of Neuschwanstein Castle (Schloss Neuschwanstein). From there one has an excellent view over the whole castle. The bridge can be reached by bus starting near the ticket office in Hohenschwangau.
The Eiserne Brücke (Iron Bridge) in Neunkirchen was built in the end of 19th century by the Ignaz Gridl Brückenbau-Anstalt. Especially in autumn one have a great view of the Schwarza river from the bridge.
While travelling from Naumburg (Saale) to the visitor center of the Nebra Sky Disk by bus I got this view of the new built Unstrut Viaduct which crosses the spacious Unstrut Valley. With a length of 2,688 m it is considered as the second longest railway bridge of Germany.
I love the architecture of this footbridge which is located next to the railway station of Voitsberg. The bridge spans the tracks of the railroad between the Styrian places Graz and Köflach. The railroad is used by the GKB Railways (Graz-Köflacher-Bahn und Busbetrieb).
This stone bridge was built in 1554 by Valentin Staudinger. The bridge using a rock in the middle of the river is considered to be the oldest still existing bridge crossing the Erlauf river. The name ‘Roman Bridge’ (Römerbrücke) for a 16th century bridge is odd but there is an assumption that the Romans used the same rock as base for their bridge.
The Puh Bridge (Puhov Most) is named after Janez Puh, an inventor and mechanic who became famous for founding the Austrian Puch automobile plants. The bridge was created by Peter Gabrijelčič аnd Viktor Markelj and opened in 2007. It is an extradosed bridge which spans the Drava River in a bow.
The Krämerbrücke is a bridge covered with 32 inhabited, half-timbered buildings. Most of these buildings houses artisans’ and antique shops. In building N° 31 a permanent exposition informs about the past and present of the Krämerbrücke.
This footbridge in Payerbach, generally known as Parksteg, was built in 1903. It is a combination of concrete and a railing in the style of Jugendstil. I was especially impressed by the idea to create the ornaments by using cast concrete.
