Spreuer Bridge, Lucerne, Switzerland
Spreuer Bridge is an old, covered wooden bridge with ancient paintings under its roof, representing a Dance of Death. Spreuer Bridge also served as part of the medieval city fortifications.
The Spreuer Bridge (German: Spreuerbrücke, formerly also Mühlenbrücke) is one of two extant covered wooden footbridges in the city of Lucerne, Switzerland. Besides the other preserved bridge, the Kapellbrücke, a third bridge of this type – the Hofbrücke – existed in Lucerne, but was demolished in the 19th century.
