History of the Iron Bridge

1867 Frankfurt citizens found a stock company - "Corporation for the Erection of an Iron Bridge at the Fahr Gate"
1868-69 Construction of the bridge according



to the designs of Johann Peter
Wilhelm Schmick
September 29, 1869 Festive inauguration
1911-12 Because of the canalization of the Main River and the resulting increase in shipping traffic, increasing the height of the bridge becomes necessary. A new steel structure is built upon the old pilings. At this time the bridge is also made wider and lengthened.
March 25, 1945 A German army commando blows up the bridge. Crossing afterwards is then by pontoons and wooden planks.
1946 The bridge is reconstructed, with a celebratory opening on November 2, 1946.
1969 The bridge is once again raised, about 40 cm, on account of the tight clearance for ships.
1992-93 "Thorough Renewal" and restoration of the Iron Bridge
February 27, 1993 Reopening celebration
