    Especially the gate looks good at night when it is lit.

    Imposing bridge gate on the Main Bridge, which survived the last World War.

    The first bridge gates can already be found near Roman bridges, where they had the function of a triumphal arch as in the case of the Alcantara bridge.Even medieval bridges were often fortified with gates, where the bridge toll was levied. After this function was lost in the later centuries, many bridge gates were demolished.Conversely, especially German large-bridge constructions of the 19th century were provided with gates and towers in order to architecturally enhance the purely ingeneically designed structures. The gates and towers represented in monumental execution, the power of the most state-owned client.Since the steel structures themselves were styleless, they could be supplemented with towers and gates of various architectural styles.Bridges with still existing bridge gates are
    Old bridge Regensburg
    Old Harburger Elbbrücke
    Old Neckar bridge Heidelberg
    Main bridge in Miltenberg
    Moselle Bridge Traben-Trarbach
    Nibelungen Bridge in Worms

    A worthy gate for the equally impressive old town of Miltenberg.
