The world is full of wonderful bridges and I do not like to cross any of them if thez are high up..
In Swedish we have a word for a bridge connecting two shores or a bridge which just ends in the water.
The bridge I choose is close to the one going from a summerplace we spent a few years out to the road. It shows the higth and length I like. I liked it as a child

@vonny,
Interesting, what with the barrel shape in the background. I presume the bridge arrived first.

@ossobuco,
I'm not sure what it is - it was built long after I left the North-East. It might be the Sage, Gateshead, which is the centre that houses a wide range of art forms includes the performing, literary and visual arts, or the Metro Radio Arena - a huge music venue. Both places are on the Gateshead side of the River Tyne - I come from the Newcastle side.

It's the "mushrooms" in Seville. They are made of wood.

I have crossed this bridge - I really have - head between knees and refusing to look out. And I even made it back.

Have walked this one many times, no fear.

Have driven the Bixby bridge, not quite as sanguine.

The Krämerbrücke is a bridge in the Thuringian city of Erfurt/Germany.
It's one of the only still existing medieval bridges, with houses on it (32).
(At least, it's the only one in Europe north of the Alps.)

The bridge dates from 1156, the houses are from post-1472 (the older houses burnt down a couple of times before).
