Reichsbrücke lies on an important axis leading from the city center to the north-east of Vienna. This bridge across the Danube river carries six lanes of traffic, used by 50.000 vehicles daily, subway tracks, two foothpaths and two cylcepaths. This is already the third bridge on this very spot, opened in November 1980, after the previous bridge had collapsed four years before.
The bridge is not beautiful at all, but it´s near my place and during summer I´m using one of the cyclepaths regularly on my way to Donauinsel, so I thought I might share this view with you - besides, I like the sunset light in this photo.
