Theodor Heuss Bridge

The Theodor Heuss Bridge also known as the Nordbrücke (North bridge) is a cable-stayed bridge over the Rhine River in Düsseldorf built from 1953 to 1957 with a main span of 260 meters (853 ft) flanked on either side by spans of 108 meters (354 ft).

It was the first cable-stayed bridge built in Germany. Along with two other cable-stayed bridges to the south, the Oberkassel Bridge and the Knie Bridge, the Theodor Heuss Bridge forms the central leg of Düsseldorf's family of bridges over the Rhine.

The bridge carries Bundesstraße 7, downtown connector to Autobahn 52. Growing traffic volume in the bridge relaxed in May 2002 due to the opening of the Airport Bridge to the north
