Kromlau, Saxony, Germany

The autumn colours dance in a reflection of the Rakotz Bridge in Kromlau, Saxony, Germany, in our #SightSeeingSunday image of the week. Built in 1860, the bridge is manmade, including the jagged, rocky spires on either end of the bridge and the pointed rocks in the Lake. The bridge is often described through the years as a bridge that belongs in a fairytale. However, the bridge is also known as the Devil’s Bridge. Many of these types were built throughout Europe during the medieval times.

The bridges are masonry and are so spectacular and challenging that it was thought only the devil could have helped with the construction. As the legend goes, the devil helped in exchange for the soul of the first human who crossed the bridge. Each bridge has its own unique folktale.

Have a magical Sunday!
