Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
The Waldschlößchenbrücke (also Waldschlösschen bridge) is a road bridge over the Elbe below the Waldschlösschen in the Elbe valley in Dresden. The crossing of the Elbe in Dresden, which was already planned at the end of the 20th century, was and is controversial and triggered the controversy that became known as the "Dresden Bridge Dispute" in the mid-1990s. After a citizens' decision in 2005, the bridge in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Dresden Elbe Valley became known throughout Germany. Because of this, the Elbe Valley was placed on the Red List of Endangered World Heritage and lost the World Heritage title three years later.
It crosses the Elba at one of its widest points and is part of the Waldschlößchenbrücke transport train with the bridgehead connections to the road network - in the north with several tunnels - as well as the feeder roads to be expanded, which should relieve the Dresden Neustadt and the neighboring bridges. The bridge was officially opened on August 24, 2013
