Chained Suspension Bridge

Local nameKettensteg
LocationNuremberg, Germany

The Chain Bridge is a pedestrian chain bridge in Nuremberg, Germany. The bridge crosses the river Pegnitz just a few meters upriver of Fronveste and Schlayerturm, fortifications in the course of the medieval city wall guarding the river's exit from the town. It connects Maxplatz in Sebalder Altstadt with Untere Kreuzgasse in Lorenz, the quarter on the south side of the river.

The Chain Bridge was built in 1824 and is thus the oldest chain bridge on the European continent. It was not given any specific name, but the public used to call it by what it appeared to be: a narrow pedestrian bridge with chains.
