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.

I didn't learn why the Germans built the bridge and what were they doing in Lanzhou which were my questions. I didnt get these answered by the way. Anyway you can walk... More
