The once magnificent Inn Bridge was, among other things, the building block for the wealth of Innsbruck. The first Inn bridge was built in the 12th century. It not only gave the city of Innsbruck the name, but also brought in a lot of money. Since there was no transition across the Inn at that time, all traders on the way from North to South had to cross the bridge here.
The benefit of the Innsbruck: For the crossing of the Inn people had to pay heavily, which filled the city treasury. It was not until 1581 that the Mühlauer bridge was built! Until then, the Inn Bridge was the only way from north to south.Today's Inn Bridge is not comparable to the former bridge. It is a pure functional building built in 1981. And it serves its purpose: cars, cyclists and pedestrians use the city's largest bridge. The concrete bridge connects the magnificent old town of Innsbruck with the oldest district of Mariahilf - St. Nikolaus. The colorful houses on the Inn testify to the beauty of these streets.innsbruck-altstadt.com/sehenswuerdigkeiten/innbruecke
