The pedestrian bridge in the canton of Bern spans the course of the river Aue and has a total length of about 60m.
To keep the river bed free of supports as far as possible while not obstructing the view, a cable-stayed bridge with a flat block-glued laminated timber body was chosen.
The masts located on the banks support the bridge body and are used to tether the guy ropes in the central area of the bridge.
The ropes are attached to the sides of the bridge body and connected by transverse glued-in threaded rods to the wooden structure.
The sides of the wooden body are staggered so that the wooden structure is protected from direct weathering.
