The iconic Zaehringen bridge of Fribourg — Part V

The iconic Zaehringen bridge of Fribourg balancing over the Saane.


Right after I tool Part II of this photo, I thought it was a killer. It was not as well received as I had expected.


Check the set dedicated to the Zaehringen Bridge


Some 34 kms southwest of Bern, FRIBOURG (Freiburg in German) is one of Switzerland’s best-kept secrets. Its winningly attractive medieval Old Town, almost perfectly preserved, is set on a forested peninsula in a meander of the River Sarine. Steep, cobbled streets, bedecked with wrought-iron lamp standards and ornate inn signs, are picturesque and characterful. Six bridges, from medieval wooden fords to lofty modern valley spans, provide woodcut-pretty views back across the town of the old houses piled up together on the slopes.
