The Red Bridge, officially the “Pont Grand-Duchesse Charlotte”, is a symbol of Luxembourg. The “Rout Bréck”, as it is known in Luxembourgish, crosses the Alzette valley over 73 metres and connects the Kirchberg district with the old town of Luxembourg. It was built from plans by the architect Egon Jux and was completed in 1966. Its connecting function will be enhanced further in 2017 with the construction of a tram line. Kirchberg is growing in importance as a financial and European centre and also increasingly as an internationally acclaimed cultural hotspot.
On 24th October this year, the “Red Bridge” celebrates the 50th anniversary of its inauguration.
The photos were taken by Anita Wünschmann, a photographer and freelance journalist in Luxembourg and Berlin. She studied at Humboldt University in Berlin.
