    The bridge "Slinky Springs to Fame" in Oberhausen Kaisergarten was inaugurated in 2011. An unusual name for an even more unusual bridge: The walk-in bridge sculpture by the Frankfurt artist Tobias Rehberger, which creates a link between the >> Kaisergarten Oberhausen and the Emscherinsel as part of EMSCHERKUNST, is one of the architectural highlights in the Ruhrgebiet.

    Interesting type of bridge. Actually only for pedestrians, but who loves his bike, pushes.

    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. ;-)

    futuristic bridge but cyclists attention please descend and push. In winter, I usually build the bridge into the Feierabendrunde, after a short run passage are at temperatures below zero, the feet for the next 25-30km WARM again.

    Unusual bridge. A soft surface makes walking comfortable, but the bridge swings, something not everyone likes. At night with colorful illumination.

    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.

An unusual name for an even more unusual bridge: The walk-in bridge sculpture is the work of the Frankfurt artist Tobias Rehberger, who worked closely together with the Essen planning office dtp Landschaftsarchitekten as part of EMSCHERKUNST.

    My favorite bridge. I have used many beautiful bridges, but this is a dream. Filigree, it still gives the feeling of security and protection.

    At the Kaisergarten. The Kaisergarten in Oberhausen is worthwhile.

    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.

    Great construction. Many people take photos or just enjoy the view of the canal

    Over this bridge, which leads over the Rhine Herne Canal, comes to Castle Oberhausen with its beautiful gardens. It is also a popular destination for families with children. From there, the Oberhausen Centro is not far away.
