Tips

  • Robert Köhler

    Because the old Lombard bridge could no longer cope with the increased traffic alone, the New Lombard Bridge was added in 1953 to the north of the old construction. The bridge, which was built according to a design by Bernhard Hermkes and has a main span of 94 m, was renamed the Kennedy Bridge in honor of the murdered John F. Kennedy in 1963 after the assassination attempt in Dallas. The golden scissors from cutting the ribbon to the traffic handover are still hanging in the entrance hall of the Museum für Hamburgische Geschichte. On the Kennedybrücke, the 10 ° meridian running here is marked on the north sidewalk on the east bank national road and rail traffic is of great importance. In 2013, the Lombard Bridge was used by an average of 67,000 vehicles per working day, the Kennedy Bridge by 50,000 vehicles, both of which were 4 percent heavy traffic. [1]

    From the Kennedy Bridge you have a good view of the Outer Alster
