    Endpoint of the bike path Lüneburg to Bardowick. One of the landmarks of Bardowick.At the Viti-Furth, the steel bascule bridge from 1965 leads over the Ilmenau. It was inaugurated on 9 April after 8 months of constructionThe crossing of the Ilmenau has been at this point at an early stage. According to history, here in 782 Marianus, who taught the Gospel in Bardowick, was slain.A bridge, however, was first mentioned here in documents in 1059. The medieval engravings by Frese and Schlöpken already show the construction of a bascule bridge.The last wooden bascule bridge dates back to 1888. It is now mentioned in some written essays that it was rebuilt after its demolition in 1964 in the Technical Open-Air Museum in Hagen (Westphalia) as a museum piece. However, research by webmaster "" has shown that this statement is unfortunately not correct. From a Bardowicker bridge there is nothing known.Source:

    Nice bridge with a lot of traffic. As a cyclist you should not drive on the road here.

    Who wants to drive from Bardowick from Lüneburg should use the bike path because it invites to a small break.
