Devil’s Bridge in Kromlau, Germany

The Devils Bridge in Kromlau Germany

The Devil’s Bridge (Rakotzbrücke) is a 19th-century stone bridge located in the 200-acre Rhododendron Park in Kromlau, Saxony, Germany. 

Legend says that not only did the devil build the structure, but Satan himself should be the only one to cross it. After all, it looks like a passageway to another world or even more mysteriously, a massive serpent’s eye.

The arched bridge also reflects a perfect circle over the water of Lake Rakotzsee. The optical illusion makes the bridge fit flawlessly into the surrounding nature. Perhaps they should rename the ancient bridge “fairy-tale bridge.”
