Schaffhausen 06.08 (120)

Living next to a river, we have many bridges. However this bridge I saw in Schaffhausen when I was visiting my son: a fascinating construction.

Derendingen 14.04 (23)

And this construction is over the River Emme in a neighbouring village.

Wangen an der Aare

And this is a very old wooden bridge, across the River Aare, in a village nearby. Note the one-way traffic. You have to wait patiently before cross the bridge.

Footbridge over the River Aar by Zuchwil

This bridge crosses the River Aar in Switzerland to the village of Zuchwil along the river from Feldbrunnen where I live.

Footpath under Rötibruck, Solothurn

The Röti Bridge in Solothurn, Switzerland. Above you see the underside of the road bridge and below the bridge for pedestrians. This bridge is only a few years old. I remember it being built. The old bridge was replaced but was still being used whilst they constructed the new bridge next to it. It was very interesting to watch a new bridge growing, and the transfer from the old to the new bridge went very well.

Motorway Biel-Solothurn at Grenchen

Another new bridge. A new stretch of motorway from Solothurn to the town of Biel/Bienne was built in Switzerland and of course it had a few new bridges. We were on our way to Biel when I took the photo from the car. The sign on the right shows that you are now entering the Kanton/State of Bern from the Kanton/State of Solothurn, A bear is the symbol of the state of Bern on the shield.

Wangen an der Aare

This is the bridge at Wangen an der Aare, further along the River Aar to where I live. It is one of the typical old Swiss style covered bridges. I have crossed it often with Mr. Swiss at the wheel. I do not like driving across myself. As you can see from the sign, it is one traffic, and you have to be careful that no-one is coming from  the opposite direction when you drive across.
