Officially, the Hindenburg Bridge had no name, it was the citizens who chose the President of the Reich Paul von Hindenburg as a patron saint.
The bridge was opened in 1912 for rail traffic to relieve the Konzer Moselle bridge. During the Second World War, in February 1945, the bridge was destroyed. Whether this was done by a bombardment of the Wehrmacht or Allied bombs is still a matter of dispute today. The fact is, this bridge, like many other bridges on the Rhine and Moselle, no longer stands.
Today, only four brick bricks and well-preserved bridge arches (total length around 75 meters, height: about 6.50 meters) and the bridgehead with abutment are preserved.
Since the bridge is located directly on the cycle path between Hedgehog and Konz, you will inevitably pass this stone witness of the Second World War.
