Oberkasseler bridge

Built:
1969 – 1967

Architect:

Friedrich Tamms

Interesting facts:

In 1896 - 1898, the Rheinische Bahngesellschaft (public transports company) built the first road bridge across the Rhine in Düsseldorf at this place. At the end of the 2nd world war the bridge was blown up and later on replaced by a  pontoon bridge.

The permanent emergency bridge built in 1946 – 48 was replaced in 1976  by the present bridge, which was at first erected 47,5 m upstream so as not to interrupt the traffic flow, and finally moved on rails to its present position.
