Tips

  • Kristof

    The Mariensteg is a 145 meter long bridge that connects the communities of Neuburg am Inn and Wernstein am Inn across the border. It may only be crossed by pedestrians and (pushing) cyclists.

    The bridge designed by the Linz architect Erhard Kargel was inaugurated in 2006 and two years later awarded the Renault Traffic Future Award.

    The asymmetrical suspension bridge has a length of 145 meters and Mariensteg spans the Inn on a max. Height of 8 meters. The total weight is only 80 tons.

    Thanks to the successful planning by DI Erhard Kargel from Linz, the bridge blends easily and unobtrusively into the landscape-sensitive valley landscape. Only a single pylon erected on Neuburg's side carries the bridge. It is needle-shaped, 30 meters high and derives the tensile forces via Rückspannseile in the granite rock. Lateral and horizontal forces absorb wind ropes on both sides of the cross member. Vibration dampers under the foot covering minimize vertical and horizontal vibrations. Even at night, the Mariensteg sets accents. The light installation by the artist Waltraut Cooper illuminates the nightly bridge in the colors of the rainbow - as a symbol of peace and a united Europe.

    Good that it is always possible to cross the Inn so easily. Everywhere one experiences, that the Inn has connected the cultural areas west and east and not separated! So whether Austria or Bavaria does not matter! People live by the river.

    Because you can stop off at the Mosthäusl.
