Mittlere Brucke

The bridge initially served local traffic, but by the 14th century, when the path across the Gotthard Pass became international, it had become a major Rhine crossing for long-distance trade. The current Mittlere Brucke dates back to 1905 when the electric tram forced the replacement of the previous bridge. A replica of the medieval bridge chapel, or Käppelijoch, where executions took place is all that remains of the original structure.
