When you click on my pictures you may see how solidly the bridge was constructed in 1918 and what is still left today.
When the US troops came close to the river Rhine, the german troops tried to destroy the bridge at Remagen, but several attempts did not succed and so the US-army was able to cross the river easily and quickly on March 7th, 1945
10 days later the bridge was breaking down, killing lots of people, so the many attempts by the german troops to destroy it and stop the US-army that way finally succeded . Read more about the details inside the Museum, or take a look at my Remagen-page !

Directions: The remains of the bridge of Remagen are at the south-end of Remagen - follow the signs or walk along the river Rhine upstream !

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
