The Mülheim Bridge (Mülheimer Brücke) in Cologne is a suspension bridge on the river Rhine in Western Germany. It has a main span of 315 metres.[1] The bridge was originally completed in 1929 and rebuilt between 1949 and 1951, having been destroyed in 1944.[1] It connects the city district Riehl on the west side of the river with Mülheim on the east side, after which the bridge is named.
