    Bavaria's King Ludwig I created an artificial waterway from Bamberg to Kehlheim in just ten years, connecting the Main and the Danube for the first time. On July 15th, 1846 the Ludwig-Danube-Main Canal was officially opened. With a length of 173 km, 10 bridge canals and 100 locks, this canal was an overwhelming achievement of the engineering art of its time. Today the old canal, the Brück Canal and the associated beer garden are popular destinations for families and those looking for relaxation.

    The Waldschänke Brückkanal lies idyllically, directly at the old canal bridge, which leads the historical "Ludwig-Danube-Main-Kanal" with a huge arch construction over the Schwarzach.

    The ideal "get-together" to linger for cyclists and hikers from the Schwarzachtal and the Ludwig Canal.

    Here you can enjoy Franconian delicacies and a measure of good "Landwehr beer" in a beautiful shady beer garden.

    The Ludwig-Danube-Main Canal leads as a "Brückkanal" at Feucht over an impressive arch bridge.

    Overall, the Ludwig-Danube-Main Canal on 10 trough bridges, so-called Brückkanälen, led over rivers, roads and cuts. The Schwarzach Brückkanal (at km 95.2) between the locks 59 and 60 with a height of 17.50 meters over the river carries, is still considered a technical masterpiece of the project.

    The Ludwig-Danube-Main Canal spans a total of around 90 meters as a bridge canal at Schwarzenbruck at a height of seventeen meters over the Schwarzach valley. Of the original ten bridging canals of the old canal, only the two close to each other - namely the one over the Schwarzach and a little further west over the Gauchsbach - and one over a small road near Beilngries are preserved today.

    Inside the bridge of the so-called Brückkanals the impressive construction can be admired.

    Arctotctic interesting building. By means of the aqueduct the historical Ludwig canal crosses the Schwarzachtal.

    Impressive engineering, the 90m span only with sandstone and initially alumina-built water bridge. The hollow foundations are now specially protected against ice formation with overpressure in order to prevent further volume changes due to ice.
