People may cross bridges everyday to get to work, some boring and some simply amazing, here are 12 of the most amazing bridges ever built! Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos. 7 – Storseisundet Bridge - The Storseisundet Bridge connects the municipalities of Norway, and it is also the longest of eight bridges that make up “The Atlantic Road” linking the mainland to the islands of the archipelago. It is 850 feet long and stands at a height of 75 feet above the water. Construction of the bridge started in 1989 and took 6 years to build, primarily due to the fact that construction was halted 12 times due to hurricanes. It cost 120 million krone, or almost $1.5 million dollars. The toll bridge was projected to recoup the capital cost to build it within 15 years, but it actually paid for itself in 10. 6 – Rakotz Bridge - The Rakotz Bridge is located in Kromlauer Park in Germany. Built in 1860, the thin, arched bridge, was commissioned by the knight of the local town and built of stone from a nearby quarry. It is known as a Devil’s Bridge, because the people thought the bridge’s sinister looking design must have been built by Satan himself. What is unique about this bridge is that its curved span was designed to form a perfect half circle, and when viewed with its reflection in the lake, appears to form a perfect circle. Visitors can still enjoy the sight of this unique bridge, but none are allowed to cross it, for fear the span may collapse. 5 - U Bein Bridge - The U Bein Bridge, named after the mayor who built it, spans Taungthaman Lake in Myanmar. It is believed to be the longest teakwood bridge in the world. Constructed in 1850, the bridge consists of 1086 pillars that support 482 separate spans that comprise the bridge’s length. The teakwood that was used in the building of the bridge was reclaimed using wood from the old royal palace in Inwa. The bridge also has 9 passageways where the wood can be removed to let barges and large boats through. Despite its age, it is still in use by both locals and tourists today. 4 – Arch Triumph – inflatable bridge - An inflatable bridge was an unusual entrant by a Paris-based architecture group, into a French competition to design a new contemporary bridge across the river Seine in Paris. This bold, yet elegant bridge was specifically designed to differentiate itself from the other 37 bridges in Paris. And the inflatable bridge is no mere footbridge – it actually makes use of giant trampolines to shuttle pedestrians to the other side. It was also designed to be temporary, like the Eiffel Tower, which was supposed to be dismantled 20 years after the 1889 World Expo. The designers of the inflatable bridge can only hope that their bridge will last as long. 3 – Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge - The Kawarau Gorge suspension bridge, located in the Otago Region of New Zealand, has an interesting claim to fame – it was the first bridge to be used as a commercial bungee jumping site. The bridge was built in 1880 to provide access to the Central Otago goldfields, but now is part of the Queentown Trail, which allows pedestrians and bikers to safely cross the Kawarau River. The bridge is still used by the AJ Hackett Bungee Company for bungee jumping and is also listed as a Category I historic place by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. 2 - Hanging Bridge of Ghasa - The Hanging Bridge is located high up in the Himalayan Mountains, in Ghasa, Nepal. The bridge spans the Burugdi Khola River valley and was actually built for a very practical reason – to ease the congestion caused by local animal herds. While the bridge appears dangerous at first site, it has stood the test of time, and is currently still in use. Local herders and farmers use it every day to transport their goods and livestock to the local market. 1 - Shaharah Bridge - The Shaharah Bridge, also known as the Bridge of Sighs, is a stone bridge located at the top of the 8,530 foot tall Jabal Shaharah Mountain in Yemen. It was built in the 17th century to connect the village of Shaharah with other villages in the area. It was also designed to be easily destroyed in case of attack by Turkish invaders. The bridge spans a 300 foot deep canyon, high up in the mountains, and is popular with both locals and tourists alike. It can be reached by climbing the many steps carved into the steep mountainside.
from the Vine Bridges of Iya Valley to the Eshima Ohashi Bridge, here are the Scariest Bridges in the World. Learn about the BIGGEST of everything Monday, Wednesday, and Friday just subscribe! # 8 Vine Bridges of Iya Valley Japan isn’t just home to big cities like Tokyo and Kyoto; it is also home to mysterious and strange places. One example is the misty West Iya Valley which is full of overgrown trees, flora, and the precarious “vine bridges”. The story of how these bridges came to be are lost to history, but what we do know is that they are made by real-life vines intertwined with planks. The bridge is sturdy but there are nearly one-foot gaps in between the planks, so if you’re a little nervous about walking on a bridge made of plants, you might want to find another way through the valley. # 7 Hussaini Hanging Bridge All you need to do is look at the Hussaini Hanging Bridge to understand why its so scary. It is a barely put together bridge that stretches across Borit Lake in Pakistan. With it’s sparse footing and steel wire it’s easy to see why it’s known by many as the world’s most dangerous bridge. Perhaps even scarier is the bridge right next to it which has collapsed and is treading water. It’s almost a warning that tells people not to use the bridge at all. # 6 Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge (pronounced carrick-a-reedy) The Carrick-a-Rede bridge is a famous rope bridge in Northern Ireland that links the mainland Ireland to the tiny island Carrick-a-rede. It is not a very long walk at only 20 meters or 66 feet in length but levitates 98 feet above a bunch of rocks and sea waves. However, you might be nervous to cross this relatively short bridge because it is entirely made of wooden planks and rope knots. # 5 Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge The Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge opened in 2016, and it is a truly spine-tingling experience. The bridge is suspended 900 feet high right above the steep valley. This bridge was built so that anyone crossing it can enjoy the nature and breathtaking sights below them. But, you might be a little too nervous to take in the view as you stare down at the nearly 1,000-foot drop. The scariest part might be the fact that one of the glass panes cracked underneath the feet of the pedestrian traffic. Now, the bridge is limited to less than 800 people at a time. # 4 Haohan Qiao Bridge The Zhangjiajie isn’t the only glass bridge in China. There’s another one known as the “Brave Men’s bridge” hanging in the Shiniuzhai National Park. Before 2014, the Brave Men’s Bridge already had a fierce reputation for being a harrowing walk. That’s when the park manager replaced the 300 meter or 980 feet long bridge just to make everything that much scarier. # 3 Ai-Petri Bridges In Crimea, there are these bridges that swing with the high winds of the Crimean mountains. The Ai-Petri bridge requires someone to have a gut of steel to get through. These peaks regularly experience gusts of up to 100 miles per hours many days of the year. If you can manage to cross these bridges, you will earn a beautiful view of the surrounding cities and the Black Sea. # 2 Aiguille Du Midi Bridge You can take a cable car all the way to the top of the Mount Blanc Massif mountain range in France and enjoy a view of the clouds. This bridge between two peaks is very short, but because you have to take a cable car up a mountain, it’s also very high. You will have to conquer any fear of heights as this short foot bridge is 9,200 feet high. # 1 Eshima Ohashi Bridge This list has some truly terrifying bridges, but this one might be the scariest to drive on. The Eshima Ohashi bridge connects the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato in Japan, although it looks more like a rollercoaster than a freeway. It is known for having pretty much the steepest gradient of any bridge, and it’s so steep photos taken of it head on make cars look like they’re driving straight. Just remember to drive safely and keep your hands inside the vehicle at all times if you ever have to cross this bridge.

Today the 1.3 kilometer long wall stands as a memorial to freedom and it is covered in art and graffiti. Right now we're visiting Brandenburg Gate. This gate dates back to the 18th Century. We're here at Tiergarten, one of the biggest parks in the city. MauerPark is a hipster hangout. If you head over to the Bear Pit you can catch some karaoke and musical performances. If you want to spot some cool street art, then head over to Friedrichshain. You can't come to Berlin and not eat a Currywurst! This is the city's most popular fast food snack. The sausage is served with a ketchup and curry powder concoction. Up next we're at the Reichstag building which has a pretty cool glass dome on top. This dome is actually open to visitors and it offers 360 degree views of the city. Today we're visiting Tempelhof, a re-purposed airport here in Berlin for leisure activities and sports. If you enjoy museums and art galleries you'll want to visit Berlin's Museum Island. They actually have five different museums here and if you get a daily pass for 18 Euros you get access to all five. We are now visiting the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. It is also known as the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Charlottenburg Palace is the largest palace in Berlin and the only surviving royal residence in the city. Checkpoint Charlie was one of the crossing points between East Berlin and West Berlin during the Cold War. Located near Alexanderplatz, The Berlin TV Tower offers a great lookout over the city. Chocolate! Ritter Sport is a chocolate brand that is sold all over Germany, and while in Berlin we couldn't resist sampling a few of the different varieties. Berlin Cathedral is located on Museum Island and it's one of the most beautiful churches in the city. If Currywurst is to your liking, you'll want to check out this quirky museum devoted to Berlin's favorite sausage. Renting a bike is a great way to get around the city. Most places will rent out bikes at 10 Euros per day. For a leisurely afternoon, hop on a boat and enjoy a tour down the River Spree. Of course, you cannot come to Berlin and not eat a Wurst or a sausage. The Friedrichshain flea market takes place every Sunday and it's a great place for people watching and a little browsing. The Germans sure know how to enjoy a hearty breakfast, and we recommend you try it too. We couldn't resist visiting yet another cat cafe while we were in Berlin. While in Berlin we enjoyed a hearty meal of Schnitzel. It's quite easy to get around Berlin using the U-bahn and S-bahn system. In Berlin, there is a big Turkish population and that means there is awesome Turkish street food. And that's Berlin for you! A city that has risen from the ashes of the war, which is now bursting with art, music, and life. Have you been to Berlin? We'd love to hear your favourite things about the city in the comments below. This is part of our Travel in Germany series.
