Cologne - Deutzer Brücke

Cologne - Deutzer Brücke
Cologne is the fourth-largest city in Germany - and one of the oldest. A Germanic tribe, the Ubii, had a settlement here, this was named by the Romans "Oppidum Ubiorum". In 50 AD, the Romans founded "Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium", the city then became the provincial capital of "Germania Inferior".

The first bridge crossing the Rhine at this point was built around 310 by the Romans. This was a wooden structure on stone pillars

The "Deutz Bridge", a suspension bridge, was built from 1913 to 1915. It collapsed in February 1945 during repair works and was replaced in 1948 by the world's first steel box girder bridge. With a total length of 437 meters. From 1976 to 1980, a second bridge with the same profile was built and connected to the old bridge in such a way that the tram was given its own two-track track structure between the directional lanes. The width of the combined bridges was now 31.50 m.
