We walked along the bridges which form a part of the old defense system of the city of Strasbourg. The best view is from the Barrage across. They are beautifully decorated with flowers in the summer. It forms a picturesque part of the old city of Strasbourg

You will see the three arched bridges that were used during medieval times as fortification protection for the dam. The original bridges were built in the 13 century and roofs removed in 1780s. The current bridges were built in 1865. Very close to Petite France quarter.

Interesting set of bridges and old fortified towers that span the River Ill in Petite France. Original bridges on the site date back to the 13th century and were originally covered (thus the name), but the covers were removed in the late 1700s. The current stone bridges were constructed in 1865.

There are several covered bridges and most have explanatory panels detailing the history of the bridge and the surrounding neighborhoods. There are so many excellent photo opportunities from the top of the bridges and down below through windows in the covered portion. Architecturally and cuisine wise Strasbourg is more German than French, with the exception of great French macaroons and pastries.

These have an interesting history and can be clearly seen from the roof of the Barrage Vauban. There are also places to sit and have a snack while watching the birds on the river.

Easily confused the obvious covered bridge is actually the" Barrage Vauban". It is a magical series of arches over the river with "rooms" or stores above each arch
It is beautifully lit at night and open until about 10pm. Walking through there are the remains of sluice mechanisms and two drawbridges with original winding gear intact.
By day go up the stairs at either end and cross the river at roof level' This gives an excellent view of the "Ponts Couvert" which are linked bridges with four massive towers protecting them, cannon openings below just above river level confirm their defensive purpose..

yes these covered bridges look lovely at night, our guide book however, had hyped them so much that by the time we saw them our expectations were not met. Strasbourg is beautiful, these bridges are also beautiful and do look great at night, but go with reasonable expectations they are only bridges after all.

This is a very interesting path to take. You can go up to enjoy the panorama of Petite France as well as go inside where you can savour modern art installations some of them are reallly interesting! And being inside you still can feel the original purpose of this construction which is very well explained.

Part of an amazing interlinked defensive structure guarding the city from access up the river. Enough of the original towers and linking bridges survive to give you a good idea of how much time and effort went into this impressive defensive system, And of course it's a lovely area to stroll in and to take the odd photo or two!

These bridges are not covered anymore, but the sights with the towers, the flowers and a plant covered house , all of them reflecting on the river gives you incredible mesmerizing pictures.
