Monschau Protestant Bridge


Footbridge over the Rur

The Protestant Bridge in Monschau is a historic footbridge over the Rur in the middle of the town. It serves as the official connection between the town church and Rurstraße. The name of the bridge comes from the fact that it was built in 1861 by the Protestant church community. At the time of the decision to build the bridge in 1821, the parish had large debts, so donations were collected from the population. From the Protestant bridge in Monschau with its elaborate wrought-iron railing, you have a wonderful view of the historic half-timbered houses and the river Rur. The special feature of the bridge: It leads from Rurrstraße directly to the round-arched tower portal of the town church.
