Beautiful Bridge connection countries

Nice old bridge, to be on or to look at.The bridge runs over the River Rhine which is already a bit bigger here. It is possible to go on a boat trip.

Pedestrian bridge across the Rhine, evocative of the past. There is something quite neat in walking across international borders. Worth seeming and experiencing! On the right on the German side there is a fence festooned with the padlocks symbolic of the dreams of lovers which I found quite touching!

This bridge connects Bad Säckingen, Germany, on the north bank of the Rhine, with the Swiss village of Stein, on the south bank. It is also a pedestrian border crossing (unmanned). Having seen many such bridges through central Europe, still I like this one, as a well decorated, well structured and architectonically beautiful specimen. Maybe 10 minutes walk from both... More

The border between Switzerland and Germany represents a line on this bridge. The bridge is very old and it's covered. You can find some of it's historical details on it. The vies from it's open places is very nice.

We went there at beginning of April with friends, it's interesting that it's the border between Germany and Switzerland, just one white line in between.

Impressing wooden bridge crossing the river Rhine. For pedestrians of both countries easy access without border control.

What is considered to be Europe's longest covered wooden bridge is definitely a worthwhile visit. From the outside the big stone pillars look a bit heavy for the wooden structure on top, so it might aesthetically not be extremely pleasing. But when one walks through the pedestrian bridge with all its bends, the experience is quite different. Some parts of... More
