    The connection between the old town and the new town. Here you have a great view of the Havel and there is delicious coffee at the two bridge cafés!

    In 1929, the millennium bridge got its name, when the new bridge was inaugurated on the occasion of the 1000th anniversary of the city. In order to give the necessary height to the former Long Bridge, the main road had to be piled up and the houses in this part of the street demolished.
    The Lange Brücke was the first direct connection between the Old and the New Town. The first wooden bridge construction was built around 1230/1240 and had to be renewed several times. In the middle of the 14th century until the spring of 1700, next to the Long Bridge, in the middle of the Havel, a multi-storey timber-framed half-timbered building stood on wooden posts. This was connected via a short bridge to the bridge.

    In 1860 a complete reconstruction of the bridge took place. There was a wooden bascule bridge. In 1892, however, this was replaced by an iron construction. The middle section was a drawbridge, which over the years became an increasing traffic obstacle in urban development and was then closed in 1928 and demolished. In the same year they built a reinforced concrete bridge with three fields. On September 7, 1929, the new bridge was inaugurated and got its name "Millennium Bridge".

    The "Millennium Bridge" should also have symbolic significance. It was intended to help people from the two districts get closer and, through better understanding, to promote the unification of the entire city. The old and the new time should meet through the new bridge construction.

    In 1945, the Millennium Bridge was blown up and rebuilt in 1946/47. In July 1993, the bridge had to be closed again for safety reasons for vehicles. In 1995/96 the demolition and the rebuilding of the millennium bridge took place.
    The sophisticated bridge was inaugurated on 4 December 1996.
