Nice views of the Yellow River which can be enjoyed without traffic. Some hawkers though. Good view point to plan hikes up the mountains or to see boat departure points.

The Yellow River in Lanzhou is very impressive and inspiring, and its banks are a perfect place to walk by, throw some pebbles in the river from, just laze around or write something, or eat some food. The bridge is a nice place as well, as motor traffic is not allowed, and on it you can also find some more... More

Nice bridge to see on your way somewhere. An old-style iron bridge, with no cars allowed (although bikes do travel across.) The views from the bridge are nice, although nothing earth-shattering. The river bank in the surrounding area is nice to see.

It's a bridge (not a particularly attractive one) that spans a dirty river. The local life around the bridge is vaguely interesting - there's a strange little beach that seems to be a family hangout, complete with some snack foods, and you can take a motorboat out on the river - but the bridge itself is not worth coming to...

This performs its primary function perfectly, spanning the Yellow River from one bank to the other. Be well aware that for long periods of the year there's little or no water in the river.

This was a 2013 review and while a remarkable engineering achievement at the time and resources went it was built, I would not stop the bus for a long photo opportunity and head to the mountain park north of the city, looking down on the city, river and bridge.

This bridge offers a wide and long view of the famous Yellow River, as well as of some interesting parts of the city. As you cross it, you can walk along an interesting walkway and see some monuments, small gardehs, and other sightseeings on one side. On the other side, you´ll view a crowded road and part of the mountains.... More

The Yellow River iron bridge is a pedestrian bridge over the Yellow River. It is filled with hawkers selling all manner of wares, from hot sweet potatoes and bulk potato chips to artisans who create sculptures out of wire. The feeling one gets as you walk across is that you are experiencing a bit of authentic China, as couples, children... More

Great bridge for its historical significance. Best time to see is at dusk. Did not get a chance to walk on it since I was more interested in taking photos with the lights on.

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.
