Burg Randeck had its first fortification around 10th century and was built in 11th-12th century. Ownership changed many hands. It was extensively renovated in 1975 and stays as an tourist attraction. You look up, it stands proudly on top of the white cliffs. You look down, you will find it in the reflection of the canal. Lovely!
Essing timber pedestrian bridge (or Tatzelwurm) was opened in September 1992, crossing the Rhein-Main-Donau Canal. It has an appearance of a sagging rope and is the first tension bridge of such a size (73m) which transforms 90% of the vertical loads into tension forces with only 10% acting as bending moments. Materials used include spruce, larch and a tropical hardwood. It is the longest wooden bridge in Europe.
