The new timber bridge between the districts of Hinteres Ebnet and Bad Briel completes the connection of the existing hiking trails from Wangen to Deuchelried. The elegant, slender bridge shape is complemented by a particularly high-quality feature in the form of a stainless steel railing net and an Accoya handrail. The stepped cross section and the dense, full-surface mastic asphalt covering reduce any possible impairment of the bridge's service life due to driving rain and other weather influences.
