The Stadtbrücke bridge across the Oder river near Frankfurt (Oder) played an important role in medieval times, both for the Hanse merchants and the pilgrims along the Way of St. James. The first solidly built bridge was constructed in 1895, which led to what was then Frankfurt's Dammvorstadt district and even had a tram track.
Today's bridge was built in 2002. The bridge, from one bank to the other (given normal water levels), is just under 252 metres long and it has a height of 34 metres. The border between Germany and Poland is right in the middle of the shipping lane, which means about two thirds of the length of the bridge are on Polish territory. It's always worth taking a detour and visiting the town of Słubice on the other side of the Oder river.
