Rakotzbrücke at the Rhododendron Park Kromlau Germany

At the Rhododendron Park in Kromlau, Germany is where you’ll find the Rakotzbrucke or the Devil’s Bridge built over 150 years ago, sometime in the 1860s. It was named as such because at that time, people believed that the bridge was dangerous and magical, and that it was built by Satan himself. But the truth is, it was commissioned by a knight in the local town.

The idea was to create an arched bridge so that it will seem to form a circle when it is reflected on the waters right below it. Today, the bridge can be viewed from the park but people are not allowed to cross or even step on it so that it can be properly preserved.
