The bridge is very close to the city center and very well preserved. There is no ticket to see the bridge which is also a plus. As it is a tourist attraction you will see many hawkers around it selling many things including travel packages. under the bridge there are a few open air restaurants. Plus you can also enjoy...

It is a nice bridge to walk across and apparently has an interesting history, although nobody can tell you much beyond the fact it was built by a German company 100 years ago. Other than that, not something you would go out of your way for. Just as easy to see it in a passing car. The best part was... More

We walked a few hours along the Yellow River . Over crowded with locals. They asked for money and money. The most interested thing was the goat skin boat.

Suggest to go in the evening: the view with lights on is quite nice. Walk along the bank of the river too and it's quite pleasant especially in the summer.

This pedestrian bridge was built in 1907, is a "must see" for visitors to Lanzhou. It's busy with both tourists and local using it as a main walkway to get across the yellow river.

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

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 :)
