|The river Rhine|
The Three Countries Bridge (German: Dreiländerbrücke, French: La passerelle des Trois Pays) is an arch bridge which crosses the Rhine between the commune of Huningue (France) and Weil am Rhein (Germany). It is the world's longest single-span bridge dedicated exclusively to carrying pedestrians and cyclists.
Its name comes from the bridge's location between France, Germany and Switzerland (the latter being located approximately 200 metres away).
The construction of the bridge required 1012 tonnes of steel, 1798 cubic metres of concrete, and 805 metres of cables of 30 and 60 centimetres in diameter.
The bridge was assembled nearby in Huningue, then transported on 26 November 2006 to its current site on the Rhine. The bridge became open to the public on 30 March 2007, and was officially inaugurated on the night of 30 June-1 July 2007.
