Elevated, Bastei Bridge, Germany

Elevated, Bastei Bridge, GermanyThe Bastei Bridge rises above the Elbe River in Germany’s Saxon Switzerland National Park.

The Bastei Bridge has been a tourist attraction for over 200 years. In 1824, a wooden bridge was constructed to link several rocks for the visitors. This bridge was replaced in 1851 by the present Bastei Bridge made of sandstone. Reaching a height of 194m (636 feet) and 305 meters (1 000.65 feet) above sea level, the jagged rocks of the Bastei were formed by water erosion over one million years ago.
