German made this bridge over 100 years ago.

German made this bridge over 100 years ago. It is now only for the pedestrians. At the bottom of the bridge, there is a nice public park to walk up and enjoy the view :)

This is first iron bridge of Yellow River. It's rather old and isn't very beautiful. You can see here nice views of the Yangtze River and the park Baytaoshan.

I mean really, it is just a bridge. But it is pretty cool to think you are walking across the first bridge that crossed the famous Yellow River. And a few thousand Chinese tourists agree! The bridge was plenty busy on both sides.

In Lanzhou , everything revolves around the mighty Yellow River or Huanghe .It was my first encounter with the second longest river in China .The 'loess' content in the water make it yellowish. The Iron Bridge was build in 1907 by a German company. It was confered with “First Bridge over the Huanghe” title. It spans over 234m long and... More

The bridge is a great place to view the river and other tourists. Nearby, you can find a gondola to take you up across the river and to the mountain. It is not easy to get to because traffic seems to be very heavy in that area.

The bridge was the first iron one across the yellow river, and the locals are really proud of it. I visited at night and it is very pretty, and a pleasant half hour to walk up and down (it is closed to traffic), looking up at the lit mountainside.

Visited the iron bridge on 19Sep. Weather is nice and cool , abt 15-18 degree celcius. This is part of the day visit to explore a couple more places along yellow river. Missed out taking the boat ride along the river as the weather turned bad in the late afternoon. Nice slow walk along the bank and manage to see... More

This pedestrian bridge with 6 piers and 5 arched steel-structured girders, built in 1907, is a "must see" for visitors to Lanzhou. Renamed the Zhongsan Bridge after Sun Yat-Sen, it is busy busy throughout the day with people milling around it all the time! A real sturdy and impressive symbol of Lanzhou!

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
