Viljandi Suspension Bridge

Tasuja puiestee 6, Viljandi

View on map

The bridge made by the Riga company Felser & Co in 1879 was erected amid the castle hills in Viljandi in 1931. It was a present by the lord of the Tarvastu Manor Karl von Mensenkampf.
Interesting to know: *The bridge is over 50 m long. * It was erected over a valley which is 15 m deep. * At first, the bridge was located over the moat in Tarvastu to make it easier for the family of the lord to visit the chapel in the ruins. The suspension bridge has become a favourite object of both citizens and visitors of Viljandi and one of the town’s important symbols. It was reconstructed in 1995.

Nice place

Nice and interesting bridge, I enjoyed it. Little bit unusual for such area -- right next to old ruins --but it's OK.

Just a bridge

It's just a bridge, nothing else. You can go there at the same time when you visit the castle ruins, take a few pics but there's really not much to see.



Fun walk over the castle moat.

Rope Bridge joins part of the town to the castle ruins, it goes over the remains of the castles moat. Nicely painted and fun to walk over.
