Long Description:
EN: Nowadays a pedestrians bridge, there's a new conctrete bridge just next to it for motorized traffic.

It can be rented for events by residents of Münchenstein.

I have not found much information about this bridge, except for a photo from 1914, so it's at least that old, and a news entry from 2007 that it was almost burnt down by drunken teeagers.

DE: Heutzutage nur noch für Fussgänger, gleich daneben steht die neue Betonbrücke für den motorisierten Verkehr.

Einwohner von Münchenstein können die Brücke auch für Veranstaltungen mieten.

Ich habe nicht viele Informationen über diese Brücke gefunden, außer einem Foto aus dem Jahr 1914, also ist sie mindestens so alt, und einem Nachrichteneintrag aus dem Jahr 2007, dass sie von betrunkenen Teeagern fast niedergebrannt wurde.
