There are many bridges with this design but this one is one of the first. It takes pedestrians, cars and trams with ease. From the bridge there are good views of the Cathedral.

Don't care about the bridge itself. But at dawn, you will not find a better place to take pictures from the Cathedral. Go one the north rim and walk to the middle of the bridge. The view is amazing.

This bridge is one of several crossing the Rhine in Cologne. It is very similar to many thousands of others around the world. The most exciting thing about it, is sailing underneath and looking up at it as we did whilst on our River Cruise.

We sailed under this bridge on our River Cruise. Apart from being one of several crossing the Rhine, it is nothing special!
