    The Holbeinsteg, built in 1990, is named after the Augsburg painter family Holbein. The nearly 150-meter-long suspension bridge, supported by two pylons, is the third Main Bridge in Frankfurt after the Ironbridge (from 1868) and the Fechenheim Arthur von Weinberg Bridge (from 1983), which is reserved for pedestrians and cyclists.

    Fantastic view on the banks of the Main. On nice days, however, very full.

    The Holbeinsteg, a 210 meter long and 5.5 meter wide pedestrian and bicycle bridge with a span of 142 meters, connects ›Hibbdebach and Dribbdebach‹ with an elegant curve - the northern part of the station on the inner city side with the southern Sachsenhausen museum bank. The original suspension bridge was designed as part of the urban planning of the museum banks in the 1980s. The goal was the cultural coalescence of the opposite banks of the Main. Named after the Augsburg painter family Holbein (exhibits of the artist Hans Holbein can be viewed in the neighboring Städel Museum, see project 227), the Holbeinsteg is the contemporary counterpart to the neighboring Eiserner Steg from the 19th century (1868) and after the Arthur von Weinberg-Steg in Fechenheim (1983) the third car-free Main Bridge in Frankfurt. When crossing the suspension bridge, pedestrians feel the gentle swing of the steel structure and can enjoy the impressive view of the Main, the museum bank and the skyline.Extract from the architecture guide »Metropolitan Region Frankfurt Rhein-Main«, DOM publishers, Anna Scheuermann, Andrea Schwappach, Paul-Martin Lied
