Wiecker wooden bascule bridge

The Wieck wooden bascule bridge connects the two districts of Wieck and Eldena in the Hanseatic City of Greifswald. It was built in 1887 following the Dutch model. The bascule bridge crosses the River Ryck. The river flows into the Dänische Wiek, part of the Greifswalder Bodden. The bridge is only accessible to cyclists and pedestrians and is only opened when necessary. During the approx. 10-minute bridge crossing, visitors can observe how the old monument works.
