Europabrücke, or Europe's bridge, is a 777-metre (2,549 ft) long bridge spanning the 657-metre (2,156 ft) Wipp valley just south of Innsbruck, Tirol, Austria. The A13 Brenner Autobahn (and European route E45) passes over this bridge, above the Sill River, forming part of the main route from western Austria to Italy via South Tyrol across the Alps. It is also part of the main route between southeastern Germany and northern Italy.
The longest span between pillars is 198 metres (650 ft). Built between 1959 and 1963, it was once Europe's highest bridge, standing 190 metres (620 ft) high above the ground. The Italia Viaduct took over this title in 1974.
