"St.-Johannes-von-Nepomuk-Brücke Rech
Die rund 43 Meter lange, bis zu fünf Meter hohe und unter Denkmalschutz stehende St. Nepomuk-Brücke Rech wurde im 18. Jahrhundert mit vier Naturstein-Gewölbebögen erbaut. Sie ist ein Schmuckstück und das Wahrzeichen der kleinen Weinbaugemeinde Rech. Die Recher Chronik vermerkt den Brücken-Baubeginn für das Jahr 1723. Die Brücke verbindet heute den Ortskern mit der Bundesstraße 266 (Ahrrotweinstraße). Als einzige Brücke über die Ahr in Rech stellt sie die Verkehrserschließung des Ortskerns sicher. Die Brücke trotzte als einzige Ahrbrücke der Ahr-Hochwasserkatastrophe am 13. Juni 1910. "
