Be Amazed at these incredible bridges! Banpo Bridge, Korea – Banpodaegyo Bridge is most famous for the Banpo Bridge Rainbow Fountain which runs along 570 metres of its length on both sides. Devil’s bridge, Germany – Known as Rakotzbrücke, this stunning stone bridge was commissioned by a knight in 1860. Moses Bridge – The West Brabant Line is dotted with 17th century forts and many were surrounded by moats which were deep enough to protect from marauders but too shallow for boat travel.
Rolling Bridge, England – At Paddington Basin in London, this 12 metre bridge connects low-lying paths without encumbering river access to the surrounding buildings and offices. Designed by the prolific Thomas Heatherwick, this bridge unfurls via the use of concealed hydraulic pumps. Slauerhoffbrug, Netherlands – Another rather extraordinary example of a moving bridge, this bridge in the Netherlands nicknamed by some as the ‘terminator bridge’ or ‘flying drawbridge’ actually retracts a whole section of road in order to let river traffic through.
It does this as many as 10 times a day. The Millau Viaduct, France – This amazing bridge is widely considered to be one of the world’s finest and it was the world’s tallest bridge with a high point of almost 350 metres above the ground until China’s Duge bridge seized that accolade in 2016. Ponte Vecchio, Italy – This gorgeous historical bridge in Florence is noteworthy because of the shops built into its stoney construction. This bridge actually first appears in a document dated to 996.
