Blue Wonder

Those pictures are back from June, when I spent a weekend in Dresden.
One famous landmark in Dresden is the Blue Wonder (the commonly used name for the Loschwitz Bridge, which is the first bridge up river from the Waldschlösschen Bridge)
The bridge was open in 1893 and is a pretty impressive piece of engineering for it's time. I particularly like the steelwork construction.
 Close to the bridge are two small railways - one a funicular railway going up to the Weisse Hirch (one of Dresden's many districts). The second one is a suspension monorail (one of the oldest in the world)
I took a trip on both and it was great fun.
