This trough bridge, as a timber construction, spans more than 34 meters. Both main girders are made of spruce glulam and have a height of almost 2 meters. They also form the guardrail so that no additional steel construction is necessary. The constructive timber protection is carried out with a lateral larch cladding and a high quality top cover made of copper sheet metal. With its regular wood surfaces the bridge integrates harmonically into the wood-dominated landscape.
