Wooden bridge of Eckernförde The wooden bridge serves as a pedestrian bridge and connects the Borby district with the center. The wooden bascule bridge is unique in Schleswig-Holstein. It was created after the great storm surge of 1872 to restore the destroyed connection between the two districts and has retained its basic features to this day. A special feature are the many padlocks that are attached to the metal struts of the bridge today. The locks, often with engraved names, stand as a symbol of the love between the people whose names can be read on them.
