The Gustav Heinemann Bridge is a bridge over the Ruhr River located in the Verdun district of Essen. At present, a federal highway (224) runs across the bridge.
The first bridge appeared on this site as early as 1065. As a result of a flood in 1752, the bridge was completely destroyed.
In the middle of the 19th century, a royal bridge was built on the site of the old bridge, which was decorated with a monument to William the First. At the end of the 19th century, statues of Otto von Bismarck and Helmut von Moltke, created by the sculptor Wilhelm Albermann, were installed on the bridge. Currently the statues are in D & uuml; ckerpark.
In 1932 the bridge was demolished and replaced with a new concrete one. In the 1960s, the bridge was replaced with the current one. The inauguration of the bridge took place in 1968, with the presence of Mayor Wilhelm Niswandt. In February 1982, the bridge was named after the third federal president, Gustav Heinemann.
