Kettensteg

© Uwe Niklas

The last of the bridges within the Old Town of Nuremberg is the Kettensteg, which is located in front of the city wall as the river flows west out of the town.

This 68-meter-long footbridge is the oldest surviving iron suspension bridge in continental Europe and a milestone in industrial technology. The name comes from the 3-meter-long chains (in German "Ketten") with which the bridge is suspended.
