About Hohe Brücke, Vienna
Bridges, Architecture, Interesting Places, Other Bridges
The Hohe Brücke (High Bridge) is a bridge across the Tiefer Graben (Deep Ditch) in Innere Stadt, Vienna, Austria. It links the two parts of Wipplingerstraße, which used to be separated by a brook.
For a long time there has been a lottery next to the bridge, and many people in Vienna remember their old advertising slogan, Über die Hohe Brücke führt der Weg zum Glücke ("Across the High Bridge leads the path to luck").
The current bridge was designed by Josef Hackhofer and built in 1903–04.
