Iron Bridge of Yellow River, Lanzhou
(3.1/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Completed in 1909, Iron Bridge of Yellow River represents the first permanent bridge over this crucial waterway. The German-made bridge replaced all the floating ones that stood before it, making history as the first of its kind on the Yellow River. Although closed to motor vehicles, it remains open to pedestrians as well as cyclists. Cross the iron bridge and take in the sight of the city skyline.

  • Cost of bridge was 3,000,000 pieces of Silver. All the iron items imported from Germany. Arrived Lanzhou late coupled with very bad traffic leading to thee city. 
  • 很不错,值得一看。佷有历史和现代价值,从市区小西湖开始一路走到铁桥沿黄河边边看边欣赏俩边景色,到铁桥后过桥就是白塔山公园,也可玩一下,景色很美。 
  • 到了蘭州,怎麼能不去黃河鐵橋呢?這是黃河上第一座鐵橋,也是洋務運動在西北所留下的遺蹟,在黃河上橫跨了百年,歷史意義早已大過了觀賞意義,是來蘭必經之地。
