Odin's Bro (Wotan's Bridge)
Take a walk in the past
Odin's Bridge is a double swing bridge, i.e. the two sections turn aside when the canal is crossed by ships. The construction is carried out so that there is freedom of passage through the full width when the bridge is open. Each span is nearly 100 meters long, and with four lanes and a two-way cycle track the width is 28 m. Each span weighs almost 2,000 tons.
Leisure craft can only pass the bridge at the following fixed times:
1 April to 30 September:
6.00 am, 8.30 am, 11.00 am, 1.30 pm, 5.30 pm, 8.00 pm, 9.30 pm*
