German Water Bridge – Magdeburg Canal Bridge

The Magdeburg Canal Bridge

This could be the worlds strangest bridge but here at gCaptain we think it is pretty cool. Germany’s water bridge known as the Magdeburge Canal Bridge took six years to build (completed in October of 2003) at a cost of 500 million Euros. The Magdeburg Water Bridge is 918 meters long. It bridges over the Elbe River in Germany and joins the Elbe-Havel canal to the Mittelland canal which is close to the city of Magdeburg, near Berlin. The water bridge joined the former East and West Germany, as part of the unification project.
