Wooden Bridge, Bad Säckingen, Germany

The Wooden Bridge crossing the Rhine connects the city of Bad Säckingen, Germany with the Swiss village Stein. It is the longest roofed wooden bridge in Europe, spanning 203.7 meters across the river Rhine. The first bridge was built in 1272. It was destroyed 3 times and rebuilt, the current bridge was completed in 1700 and equals the design of 1580. Since the completion of the Fridolin Bridge, the Wooden Bridge is open only to pedestrians.
I sent this one home for my own collection in July 2013
