Bridges to Explore in Austria
The Andau Bridge is a small wooden bridge over the Einser Canal on the Austro - Hungarian border in Seewinkel near the village of Andau . It became famous when tens of thousands of people fled to Austria after the suppression of the Hungarian people's uprising. Until 1956, the bridge served the local farmers in the Seewinkel as an auxiliary bridge to reach their fields, which were often on both sides of the border. The bridge crosses the Einser Canal.
The Europa Bridge is a 820-metre-long bridge carrying the A13 Brenner Autobahn 190m over the Wipp valley just south of Innsbruck. The bridge spans the Sill River, and forms part of the main route across the Alps from western Austria to South Tyrol in Italy. It is also part of the main route between southeastern Germany and northern Italy.
The Marko-Feingold-Steg is a bridge for pedestrians and cyclists over the Salzach in the city of Salzburg. It connects the Franz-Josef-Kai at the level of the Ferdinand-Hanusch-Platz in the left old town with the Elisabethkai and - via the direct extension of Josef-Friedrich-Hummel-Straße - the Makartplatz in the right bank of the old town. The first footbridge consisted of an iron construction in Art Nouveau style on two pillars - like the Mozart footbridge.
