    The Tatzelwurm is the second longest wooden bridge in Europe and leads at this point as a pedestrian bridge over the Main-Danube Canal. From the middle of the Tatzelwurms you have a great view of the water and on the steep valley flanks.

    This is a strap bridge. It was built in 1986 and was the longest wooden bridge in Europe at 189.91 m until 2006. In 2006 it was replaced as the longest wooden bridge in Europe by the Drachenschwanz bridge in Ronneburg.

    From the bridge you have a great view of the Essingen rock massif and the Randeck castle ruins, which towers high above the village.
