Wooden Drawbridge Wieck
The Wooden bascule bridge Wieck connects the districts Wieck and Eldena of the Hanse town Greifswald. It was built in 1887 based on a Dutch model. The bridge is situated across the river Ryck. The river empties into the Danish Wieck, a part of Greifswald’s Bodden. The bridge is only accessible for cyclists and pedestrians and is only opened on demand. During the approx. 10 min long bridge opening, engineering enthusiasts can watch the functionality of the old memorial.
