The Praunheimer bridge crosses the river Nidda in Frankfurt district Praunheim. To the south is the Praunheimer Landstraße, in the north the street Alt-Praunheim.
The first mention of the bridge dates back to the year 1556. It is believed that it was more often destroyed by floods or damaged at this time. In 1827 it is documented that the bridge is expanding. In 1892, the Praunheimer bridge was brought down by a 17.5-ton steamroller. In 1969, the arch bridge was overhauled. Around 1985, a separate pedestrian bridge was built next to the bridge. With the construction of the current bridge, the removable pedestrian bridge was moved to Hausen (Hausener Obergasse / Hausener Weg).The transition has a single-lane road in each direction and has on both sides of a separate running foot and bike path 🚴♂️• Name: Praunheimer bridge
