The Magdeburg water bridge is built over the river Elbe to connect the former East and West Germany. It allows ships to cross over the Elbe. Measuring just under 1 kilometer (918 meters) in length, it is the longest navigable aqueduct in the world. It took 24,000 metric tons of steel and 68,000 cubic meters of concrete to build this “river” over another river.
The bridge is also used by people to cross the river.
Started in the 1930s, the aqueduct was completed and opened to the public in 2003.
