The Rheinknie Bridge in Dusseldorf is a cable-stayed bridge over the Rhine from 1969, which connects Friedrichstadt and Unterbilk in the 3rd district (right bank of the Rhine) with Oberkassel in the 4th district (left bank of the Rhine). On the left bank of the Rhine, it leads to the Rheinalleetunnel, which connects to Federal Highway 7, which merges into the A52, from where it continues on the motorway to Aachen and Belgium. On the right bank of the Rhine, it has a direct connection to the Rheinufer Tunnel and leads straight into the southern city center. Together with the North Rhine-Westphalian Landtag, the office tower Stadttor and the Rheinturm, the Rheinkniebrücke dominates the cityscape on the Rhine knee, the section of a river loop of the Rhine, which runs here in the form of a knee. On both sides of the right bank of the Rhine bridge the government district of North Rhine-Westphalia stretches.

Bridges connect, but they also have a strategic and optical function. And they tell history and stories. As is well known, Düsseldorf is located on the Rhine and there are now seven bridges in the city, five of which are cable-stayed bridges. Their family resemblance is unmistakable. The Rheinkniebrücke is undoubtedly the star of the family. It was built in 1969 and swings particularly elegantly over the Rhine at the "Rhine knee". It stands in a prominent place, not far from the state parliament, Rhine tower and Medienhafen. Here is also the small footbridge (2005), which connects the Medienhafen with the Paradise Beach, and whose design has been adapted to that of the big "sisters".lokalkompass.de/duesseldorf/c-reisen-entzüge/die-duesseldorfer-bruecken-familie_a1231806
