    Description:

    A covered wooden footbridge spanning diagonally across the Reuss River. Named after the nearby St. Peter’s Chapel, the bridge is unique since it contains a number of interior paintings (some by Hans Heinrich Wägmann) dating back to the 17th century, although many of them were destroyed along with most of the centuries old bridge in a 1993 fire. Subsequently restored, the Kapellbrücke is the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe, as well as the world’s oldest surviving truss bridge. L…

It was an economically and strategically important bridge in the era of the Roman Empire and was the site of the famous Battle of Milvian Bridge (between the Roman Emperors Constantine I and Maxentius in 312).

    Description:

    A fortified bridge over the Adige River. The segmental arch bridge featured the world’s largest span at the time of its construction (48.70 m).
