Bike Touring Highlight
Here you have a beautiful view of the Weser and the Schiffmühle (replica) as well as Porta Westfalica with the Kaiser Wilhelm monument in the far distance. A good point for a short break.
Nearby are the Weser beach with beach bar and the Schiffmühlen gastronomy with beer garden.

The "Glacis Bridge" in Minden is a suspension bridge over the Weser, only for pedestrians and cyclists. It connects the city center of Minden with the large car park on “Kanzlers Weide” on the other bank of the Weser. A good idea from city planners to keep cars away. It was designed by Jörg Schlaich.

The bridge was built after a long discussion in 1995 and connects the southern part of the right bank of the Weser and the large car park Kanzlers Weide with the city center of Minden at the level of the Weserglacis. Above all, the change in the view of the Porta Westfalica from Minden in the northern German lowlands was discussed.The Stuttgart civil engineer Jörg Schlaich won the competition. He constructed a light suspension bridge that is 177 meters long, spanned the Weser in 103 meters with a 3.50 meter wide concrete ramp and is suspended from two 22 meter high tubular steel masts. As a result, the view of the panorama of the Porta Westfalica is only slightly impaired.The southern side of the bridge facing Porta Westfalica is illuminated in blue at night. This illumination is part of a blue band of light that continues from the city across the bridge to the east and includes the Minden ship mill.In April 2016, the bridge was closed to cyclists because the railings were too low for cycling. An additional rope was installed in November 2016 to raise the railing to the legally required height of 1.30 m, which made the bridge accessible for cyclists.

the bridge comes directly from the WoMO parking space. Nice bike path on the other side - at the moment - not only heavily used but everything that can move is there ... Unfortunately, many four-legged friends. The inconsiderate problem is always on two legs.To the hikers and other pedestrians: Please do as it should be!Always go towards traffic (danger)! Then cyclists know what you do ... and you know what cyclists do.
You don't go on the country road with the traffic (back to danger) but want to see what drivers do.
