Bridges of Europe – Part Four, Northern & Central Europe

The feats of engineering that has enabled road & rail bridges to be built in the mountainous regions of Central Europe & Scandinavia is nothing short of mind boggling.

Couple that with the atmospheric canal bridges in the likes of Amsterdam, Bruges & Stockholm and you get a rich tapestry of crossings throughout the regions.

Here are some pictures of my favourites.

  1. The Swiss do have some impressive viaducts – love the sweep of the bridges in this. Thanks for linking up with #citytripping

  2. Did you know that the top of the Store Bælt Bridge in Denmark is taller than any natural point in the country? Ha! I’ve driven over both that one and can attest that it is VERY LONG, but super cool. And on clear days you can see the Øresund bridge and across to Sweden from the capital. And the end of the Øresund Bridge goes under water when it hits Denmark. It’s true! Great collection, thanks for sharing with #FarawayFiles, Erin

    1. Fascinating facts and incredible engineering!

  3. What lovely pics! I’d love to travel these #citytrippinv

  4. Love all these photos, though I’m not sure I’d look out the window on some of those trains in Switzerland! Wow! Thanks for linking up with #farawayfiles

  5. I’d love to travel across many of these! #FarawayFiles

  6. Oh my gosh! It seems like we should know there are so many amazing bridges in the world, but it’s so fun seeing them pictured! You might consider making a little coffee table book for yourself with all these wonderful photos! #farawayfiles

    1. Thanks Hilary. I have started loving Bridges. I think it was the one in Mostar that represents so much that started it all off

  7. Man’s ingenuity abounds with all these bridges and viaducts. I had no idea they made circular train track/bridges. So cool.

    1. Examples of the good things that humans can do. We need more of that and less of the other…..

  8. Awesome bridges! Would love to drive/walk over a number of these!
