    The popularly called "Tatzelwurm" bridge over the Main-Danube Canal at Essing was until 2006 the longest wooden bridge in Europe with a length of 190 meters.
    The striking architecture is worth seeing and the crossing by bike is in a good mood.

    This unusual wooden bridge has a striking architecture and is a strap bridge. At 193 meters in length, it is one of the longest wooden bridges in Europe. Absolutely worth seeing!
    It somehow reminds me of a Dino ... ;-)

    The "Tazlwurm" at Essing. Be sure to cross - no matter which side. Then enjoy the change of perspective and discover new looks.

    Nice view of Randeck Castle - who jumps makes the bridge swing. Great for children too!
    "The wooden bridge near Essing is a strap bridge that leads pedestrians and cyclists across the Main-Danube Canal near Essing near Kelheim. The bridge, built after seven years of planning in 1986, was the longest wooden bridge in Europe at 189.91 m until 2006 was replaced by the dragon's tail in Ronneburg. Especially on the bridge known locally as Tatzelwurm is the use of glulam as a tensioning strap. "

    Definitely an experience, not only because of the bridge - the place Essing is also really worth seeing. Tip: Definitely cycle up to the Klausenhöhlen, they are not further from the south end of the bridge.
