Rakotzbrücke

Kromlau’s version of a devil’s bridge is famous for its semi-circle arch which mirrors itself against the waters of Rakotz See into a perfect circle. It really is a perfect circle at any angle.

There is something repulsive, at the same time beguiling about this bridge. Perhaps because it is also known as a “devil’s bridge” which, according to tales, was built after making a pact with the devil for its completion. True or not, I had goosebumps because someone died during construction. A memorial, in fact, stands erect before the bridge’s entrance. 😬 Or was I just in awe. No matter, I was bewitched.
My good company for the looong trip. 😊
I can’t help but imagine myself inside an LOTR movie with these.
