The Eiserne Steg, probably Frankfurt's best known bridge, is a romantic 19th-century footbridge over the river Main. The bridge itself is made of iron, the bridgeheads of red sandstone. The 174 meter-long footpath has been adapted several times over the years, and is now accessible by children and the disabled. Blown up towards the end of WWII, today's bridge is a reconstruction of the old Eiserner Steg. It affords a fantastic view overlooking the shimmering river and makes for a nice spot to take in the atmosphere.
