Augartenbrücke (Augarten bridge) is one of twenty bridges across the Donaukanal, a 17 kilometres long side arm of the river Danube in Vienna. The bridge connects the second with the ninth district and was first built in 1782 in order to make newly opened Augarten, a nearby park, easily accessible from the Inner City. Since then the bridge has been torn down and destroyed several times, the last of which was at the end of the Second World War in 1945 by the Germans. Less than one year later the unadorned steel bridge was reopened to people, cars and tramways. Among young people Augartenbrücke is know for being the common way to Vienna’s most popular music club Flex. Just take the stairs down to the Donaukanal on the right side of the southern end of the bridge and you will be captured by the fairy lights and the club tunes.
