The new Nedlitz North Bridge has a chequered past: Theodor Fontane crossed Persius Bridge, inaugurated in 1855, in the course of his Wanderungen durch die Mark Brandenburg (‘Hikes through the Brandenburg Marches”). Here he describes the old Nedlitz ferry, which had to make way for a simple wooden bridge almost 200 years ago during the reign of Great Elector Frederick William. King Frederick William IV (1795-1861) commissioned the Senior Construction Officer Ludwig Persius (1803-1845) to build a solid stone bridge at this site. It consisted of four round arches and a drawbridge for shipping traffic. Along with the new construction of the bridge, Persius also designed the striking residential building at the south end of the bridge in the style of a Norman castle on the King's orders. The severe damage caused by the Second World War and the increasing traffic loads finally prompted the demolition and subsequent rebuilding of the bridge. In 2003, the 52-metre long Nedlitz North Bridge was opened for use. Today there are two recesses on each side of the bridge that provide a view of the charming lakeland scenery.
