Holzbrücke Bad Säckingen is a road bridge over the Rhine. It connects the German city of Bad Säckingen with the village Stein in Switzerland. The wooden bridge spans 203.7 metres (668 ft) over the Hochrhein and is the longest roofed wooden bridge of Europe. The bridge is listed as a national registered monument in Switzerland (Kulturgut von nationaler Bedeutung im Kanton Aargau).
The bridge was built in 1272 and was destroyed several times (1570, 1633, 1678). The current bridge was completed in 1700. Today, the bridge is only open for pedestrians since Fridolinsbrücke (Swiss: Rheinbrücke Stein) was opened in 1979 for road traffic.
