Maximilian Bridge in Munich (Maximiliansbrücke)

The Maximilian Bridge or Maximiliansbrücke is one of the bridges over the Isar river in Munich.

The Maximilian bridge connects two districts: Leel (Lehel) and AU-Haidhausen, leads from the streets of Maximilianstrasse, an integral continuation of the historical building, the Maximilianeum. A large part of the bridge belongs to district Leel.

Maximiliansstube is an architectural monument and is named in honor of the Bavarian king Maximilian II.

On the bridge are two carriageways of the road and the sidewalk, one on each side of the bridge.

The Maximilian bridge consists of two bridges (components) that together constitute a single bridge:

- the Western section of the bridge (internal Maximiliansstube), connects the West Bank - the left sleeve of the ISAR (Great ISAR) with Prater island (Praterinsel) and Spindt (Schwindinsel).

This part of the bridge consists of three segmental arches: the middle and larger, and two lateral, one on each side the Central arch, smaller in size;

- Eastern land bridge (external Maximiliansstube), leads from the Islands through the right sleeve of the ISAR (Small ISAR) and the Auer mühlbach Creek (Auer Mühlbach) in the district of AU-Haidhausen.

This part of the bridge has a brick segment arches, and the outside of the bridge decorated with a statue of the sculptor Franz Drexler 1906, dedicated to Athena Pallada.

On the bridge of Maximilian, near the island of Schwind is the fountain of Bürgermeister-Erhardt-Brunnen, or just a fountain Erhard (Erhardt-Brunnen).

Limestone fountain decorated with a bronze bust of Alois von Erhardt.

At the Eastern tip of the ILO Maximilian marks the Maximilianeum historical and luxurious building in Munich, which is the seat of the Maximilianeum Foundation for gifted students and the seat of the Bavarian Landtag (Bavarian state Parliament). Read more about the Maximilianeum...

A brief history of the Maximilian bridge at Munich

Maximiliansau bridges were designed by the town planning officer of Arnold Zenetti and executed under his leadership, from 1857 to 1863 years.

The first stone into a bridge abutment on the right Bank of the ISAR was founded by king Maximilian II during the celebration of the 700th anniversary of the city of Munich. Father Gregor Scherr, Archbishop of Munich-Freising, blessed the bridge.

In the period from 1903 to 1905 by the architect Friedrich von Tirsa was conducted to expand the bridge, wherein the bridge via an internal ISAR was expanded and part of it through the outer ISAR was rebuilt.

In subsequent bridges were restorations.
