Road Cycling Highlight
The Stößenseebrücke is a steel truss bridge over the Stößensee and the Havelchaussee in Berlin's Spandau district.
The landmarked bridge from the years 1908/1909 is part of the Heerstraße (federal road 2/5) and connects the Spandau district Wilhelmstadt with the district Westend in the district Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf. In the construction of the army road the biggest technical and financial problem was the bridging of the Havel lowland, to which the Stößensee, a Havel altar, belongs. Among several variants, including an additional and 250-meter-long bridge over the Scharfe Lanke, the planners decided on a route that came with two bridges - on the Havel and the Stößensee - came out. With regard to the variants of the impact bridge, the "small" solution with a dam embankment and a bridge about 100 meters long was chosen instead of a bridge over the entire lake.
The bridge consists of a system of cantilever beams with attached tow carriers and has a span of around 50 meters. She goes to plans of the civil engineer Karl Bernhard.
