The bridge is based on the typical spiral toy and fits with its colorful floor design totally well in the image of the environment.
The bridge is 406 m long and 62 m of which hang freely in 10m height over the Rhine-Herne-Kanal.
You must have used them once, even if it is only for pedestrians. ;-)

The bridge, with a running surface of approx. 2.50 m, is rhythmized by changing color fields and additionally illuminated at night. Slinky Springs to Fame is always accessible in the Oberhausen Kaisergarten and, especially for amateur photographers, one of the most exciting photo opportunities in the Ruhrgebiet.

Popularly named after its architect: "Rehberger Bridge". The official name "Slinky Springs to Fame" does more justice to the spectacular bridge sculpture between the Kaisergarten and Emscher Island. With the new spiral bridge over the Rhine-Herne Canal, Oberhausen is enriched by one sight. The bold construction, whose name comes from the American spiral toy "Slinky", swings over the Rhine-Herne Canal like a lasso. The colored, landscape crossing of pedestrians, encased in 496 spirals, can be used.
