Create an itinerary including Roman Bridge
The ancient Romans were the first civilization to build large, permanent bridges. Early Roman bridges used techniques introduced by Etruscan immigrants, but the Romans improved those skills, developing and enhancing methods such as arches and keystones. There were three major types of Roman bridge: wooden, pontoon, and stone. Early Roman bridges were wooden, but by the 2nd century stone was being used. Stone bridges used the arch as their basic structure, and most used concrete, the first use of this material in bridge-building.

  • This is the oldest bridge in Trier, built by the Romans but restructured and patched up many times, of course. The look is nicer from the sides than on top of it.

  • It’s an old bridge with Roman piers and a modern road on top. Not much else one can say other than the fact is that it demonstrates the excellent quality of Roman engineering

  • Great piece of Roman engineering! Would have loved to learn a little more about the construction (e.g. foundations)
  • The oldest bridge of Germany, and you can feel it!
