Building a bridge between Fürstenfeld and Bruck

 

 

 

 

 

Decisive for the development of Fürstenfeldbruck was the passage across the Amper which gave the town its name and which was linked to a former customs’ station. Also, the Salt Route from Reichenhall to Augsburg crossed the river here. On the bridge a statue of John of Nepomuk, the patron saint of bridges, has stood since 1722 – the present statue was put up in 1924. The bridge’s parapet is embellished in Art Nouveau style.

Bath houses up the river still bear witness to the fact that the Amper used to be popular with summer visitors from Munich who tried to get away from the hustle and bustle in the city.
