The first structure of the Elisen Bridge as a stone arch bridge over the Danube was built under the reign of Prince Luitpold of Bavaria. The current building consists of precast concrete and was renovated in 1948/49 and 1988/89. The busy bridge (through traffic) affords a beautiful view of the Danube.
