    From the bridge you can have a fantastic view over the Rhine and the banks of the Rhine in Düsseldorf. Watching the sunset from the Kniebrücke is a real highlight.

    The Rheinknie Bridge in Dusseldorf is a cable-stayed bridge over the Rhine from 1969, which connects Friedrichstadt and Unterbilk in the 3rd district (right bank of the Rhine) with Oberkassel in the 4th district (left bank of the Rhine). On the left bank of the Rhine, it leads to the Rheinalleetunnel, which connects to Federal Highway 7, which merges into the A52, from where it continues on the motorway to Aachen and Belgium. On the right bank of the Rhine, it has a direct connection to the Rheinufer Tunnel and leads straight into the southern city center. Together with the North Rhine-Westphalian Landtag, the office tower Stadttor and the Rheinturm, the Rheinkniebrücke dominates the cityscape on the Rhine knee, the section of a river loop of the Rhine, which runs here in the form of a knee. On both sides of the right bank of the Rhine bridge the government district of North Rhine-Westphalia stretches.

    The Rheinkniebrücke in Düsseldorf is a cable-stayed bridge over the Rhine from 1969, which connects Friedrichstadt and Unterbilk in the 3rd district (on the right bank of the Rhine) with Oberkassel in the 4th district (on the left bank of the Rhine). It leads on the left bank of the Rhine into the Rheinalleetunnel, which creates a connection to the federal highway 7, which merges into the A 52, from which it goes on to the motorway to Aachen and Belgium. On the right bank of the Rhine it has a direct connection to the Rhine bank tunnel and leads straight to the southern city center. Together with the North Rhine-Westphalian state parliament, the Stadttor high-rise office building and the Rheinturm, the Rheinkniebrücke dominates the cityscape at the Rhine knee, the section of a river bend in the Rhine that runs in the shape of a knee. The government district of North Rhine-Westphalia extends on both sides of the foot of the bridge on the right bank of the Rhine.
    The name Rheinkniebrücke is derived from the location of the bridge on a tight curve in the Rhine. Seen from the air, this section of the Rhine looks like a human knee.

    Bridges connect, but they also have a strategic and optical function. And they tell history and stories. As is well known, Düsseldorf is located on the Rhine and there are now seven bridges in the city, five of which are cable-stayed bridges. Their family resemblance is unmistakable. The Rheinkniebrücke is undoubtedly the star of the family. It was built in 1969 and swings particularly elegantly over the Rhine at the "Rhine knee". It stands in a prominent position, not far from the state parliament, Rhine tower and Medienhafen. Here is also the small footbridge (2005), which connects the Medienhafen with the Paradise Beach, and whose design has been adapted to that of the big "sisters".
