    The Krugkoppelbrücke is a listed building that spans the Alster on the north side of the Alster between Hamburg-Harvestehude and Winterhude and leads the street "Krugkoppel" across the river.

    A first wooden bridge was built at this point in 1891 to plans by Franz Andreas Meyer. It was one of the last wooden bridges built in Hamburg. The present, 72-meter-long structure was built between 1927 and 1928 according to plans by Fritz Schumacher and Gustav Leo. The bridge consists of three fixed arched arches made of reinforced concrete. Schumacher chose clinker ceramics and terracotta for the delimitation of the parapet areas, which among other things show vines and two-tailed sea creatures. The projecting bridge abutments have embedded shell ornaments designed by Richard Kuöhl; the balustrade bears the coat of arms of the Hanseatic city.

    At the bridge there is a pier for Alster steamer.

    On this bridge you get wonderful views over the Alster

    Fritz Schumacher, the architect of the Krugkoppelbrücke was Hamburg's big city planner.
    Holthusenbad and Davidwache, Stadtpark and Krugkoppelbrücke: Fritz Schumacher's buildings and facilities characterize Hamburg's cityscape to this day. More than 90 buildings and bridges, many of them made of brick, testify to its immense creative power.

    For 24 years, from 1909 until his compulsory retirement by the Nazis in 1933, Schumacher designed modern Hamburg in his function as building director. His work extends far beyond the mere buildings: Schumacher's goal was to create a new home for the modern urban man.

    a beautiful, old bridge with beautiful lamps. If you stop here for a moment, you can enjoy a magnificent view over the Alster to the city center.

    The Krugkoppelbrücke - a piece of Hamburg's history
    Hamburg is the bridge city par excellence. The Hanseatic city has more bridges than any other major European city. Among the 2,500 bridge buildings in the city is the listed Krugkoppel bridge, which leads the Krugkoppel road across the Alster on the north side of the Außenalster.
