Ryck Bridge Greifswald

The design of this multi-span steel bridge resembles that of a boating dock, with a series of 9 m short spans and a width of 3.10 m. The central segment is a 15 m long pivot bridge driven by a hydraulic cylinder, which allows for the passage of the historical sailing ships to their berth in the museum’s harbor. To limit deflections in the closed state and to ensure stability in the opened state, the main beam is suspended from the central mast with two tension rods. The deck of the bridge consists of oak planks and its wooden handrail has an integrated lighting system.
