Lanzhou unfortunately suffers from a lack of tourism features but even moreso tourism marketing. The destination has quite some interesting spots like this one marketed far too little. Iron Bridge is one of the few mass tourism spots in the City especially in the months from June through to September.

Current name : Zhong Shan Bridge. Amazing bridge built in the 19th Century and still used for pedestrians and cyclists.

If your headed to the river this is a great vantage point to see it and the "beach". I wouldn't make a special trip.

I don't get why it is an attraction because it is plainly an iron bridge across the Yellow River. You can view it from the top of Baita Mountain (白塔山, White Pagoda Hill).

If you visite lanzhou , you can't avoid the iron bridge, it's a very happy place, especially in the evening, many people dance and walk across the bridge, photographers ,you can take a photo, it's not so expensive.

You have to visit it during the night it's more interesting (illuminated),it's near the night market , so it's more lively at night, and the yellow river too.

From this dusty town of Baijiu and Cambay this is a nice little spectacle. There is actually nothing to look at.. But for the philosophers and not your average tourists this is a good BRIDGE... Cant drive on the bridge but you can walk to the middle.
