9am Köhlbrandbrücke

The stunning architectural creation that is Köhlbrandbrücke dominates the skyline and connects the island of Wilhelmsburg to the harbour area. For a few fleeting hours during the Köhlbrandbrückenlaufs (Köhlbrand Bridge Run) on the Day of Unity the bridge is cleared of traffic and runners get to experience the view of the Elbe.

At only 12km the race is not the longest or even most famous of Hamburg’s many races but it certainly is one of the most unusual. As you approach the bridge you can see the towering triangular supports that straddle the delicate arch of the main carriageway at a height of about 53m.
