    The Kettensteg in Nuremberg is the oldest preserved iron chain bridge in continental Europe. It is located directly on the old city outflow of the Pegnitz in front of the Fronveste between Hallertor and Kreuzgasse. The Kettensteg is about 68 meters long and is considered a historic monument of technology. He is also part of the historic mile of Nuremberg.

    Narrow, but the crossing is still not a tightrope act.

    Recommend the visit in summer, when it is green around it. Really nice place.

    The 68 meter long pedestrian bridge is the oldest surviving iron suspension bridge on mainland Europe and thus a milestone in industrial history. The name of the chain bridge came from the vernacular due to the three-meter chain links to which it is attached.
