8 Middle Bridge Over Rhine in Basel, Switzerland

In 1226, the stone and wood Middle Bridge was built over the Rhine River to connect the main section of Basel called Grossbasel with the Kleinbasel or right bank (shown). In the middle is the Käppelijoch chapel where unfaithful women prayed before being bound, weighted and thrown into the water below. In 1905, the Mittlere Brücke was reconstructed.
