    The named after Léonçe Könneritz Könneritzbrücke connects in the course of Ernst-Mey-Straße, the Leipzig districts Plagwitz and Schleußig. The bridge spans the Weiße Elster.

    The Könneritzbrücke was built in 1869 as a wooden bridge for the connection to the industrially up-and-coming Plagwitz. For this purpose, the material of the wooden bridge, built in 1858, was used instead of the present Plagwitzer bridge. In 1899, the wooden bridge, which in the meantime no longer complied with the requirements, was replaced by what was then a state-of-the-art iron construction in its present form. The Könneritz bridge is today under protection as a technical monument and, with its eye-catching truss girder and arch structure made of riveted iron girders, forms an exceptionally striking image.

    The bridge was built in 1869 out of wood, then built in 1899 in today's iron construction. It spans the Weiße Elster, connecting the districts Schleußig and Plagwitz.

    Very nice and quiet corner in Leipzig. In addition to the bridge, the houses on the water are also nice to look at.

    From the water you have a completely different and often more beautiful view of the houses.
