The Lift Bridge of Luebeck
Germany

The Lift Bridges (Hubbrücken) in Lübeck are a combination of three bridges over the Elbe-Lübeck-Channel in the Old Town of Lübeck channel, two of which (the road bridge and the railway bridge) are constructed as lift bridges to let the ships pass by. The third bridge is a pedestrian one; this one is fixed in the high position and to be reached using stairs. The lift mechanism is built 1905; there is just one company capable to custom-make spare parts for the mechanism. The bridges are being lifted using a counter-weight and a small electric engine. The railway bridge shown here is not in use anymore since 2008.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
