It is a navigable aqueduct in Germany, opened in October 2003 with a total length of 918 metres. Looks gorgeous as we visited the bridge at sunset

The water bridge of Magdeburg is one of the wonders of German waterways engineering. It is a bridge that allows a canal (the Midland Canal, that runs across Germany to the Rhine)to cross the river Elbe (which goes north south and connects Hamburg and the North sea to the Danube) and to connect with the Elbe-Havel canal (which connects the Elbe river to to the East all the way to Poland, through a system of canals and lakes) . Due to a water level difference it is not possible to connect them directly, hence the bridge.

At just under one kilometre it is the longest navigable water bridge. Through two large water locks (towers) boats and barges can move from one canal to the other.

There are two ways to visit it:
By car: Driving on the A2 Autobahn (coming from Berlin to Hannover ) it is just before the exit for Magdeburg, the Exit is marked for Trogbrücke. follow a narrow road that takes you to the bridge (need to follow the road signage) you end up at a parking lot right next to the bridge and you can go on foot and explore.

Another alternative is to go by boat tour from Magdeburg (in the summer months only)

Highly recommended, beautiful landscapes and rewarding views
