In Horbourg-Wihr we searched for a bridge that is the same type as the one at Arromanches. We looked at a local map and found only one place with a road crossing the river. We decided to check that point out first for the bridge.
The bridge is still in use. There is a maximum weight and height for the traffic. We were disappointed that there wasn't any information or a plaque for this bridge. We donít know if the bridge was put there for the troops to get to Colmar or after the war to rebuild the country.
We were lucky that the river Ill was very low so we could take pictures from the riverbed.
