Devil’s Bridge in Tartu

Lossi tänav 19, Tartu

View on map

The elegant Devil's Bridge is a rare example of a concrete bridge from the early 20th century. It complements Angel's Bridge and is one of the symbols not only of Toomemägi Hill, but Tartu as a whole. A wooden bridge was erected on the site in Neogothic style in 1809 to the designs of J. W. Kraus. The current bridge was built in 1913 to the designs of A. Eichhorn and was dedicated to the 300th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty of the Russian tsars. 

Did you know...? 
*The bridge's name may have come from the fact that it complemented Angel's Bridge or have been derived from the name of its lead construction engineer, Werner Zoege von Manteuffel (teufel being German for 'devil').

Devil's bridge

Just one concrete bridge in Tartu called the devil bridge from the name of the construction enginer.

You will go under this bridge when going to Toome hill. The name, devil's bridge itself sounds quite exciting
