You will see the three arched bridges that were used during medieval times as fortification protection for the dam. The original bridges were built in the 13 century and roofs removed in 1780s. The current bridges were built in 1865. Very close to Petite France quarter.

We walked along the bridges which form a part of the old defense system of the city of Strasbourg. The best view is from the Barrage across. They are beautifully decorated with flowers in the summer. It forms a picturesque part of the old city of Strasbourg

Part of an amazing interlinked defensive structure guarding the city from access up the river. Enough of the original towers and linking bridges survive to give you a good idea of how much time and effort went into this impressive defensive system, And of course it's a lovely area to stroll in and to take the odd photo or two!

A group of old bridges and defense towers. They used to be covered, but now they are not. Nothing spectacular from an architectural point of view. A nice area for a walk, though.

Interesting set of bridges and old fortified towers that span the River Ill in Petite France. Original bridges on the site date back to the 13th century and were originally covered (thus the name), but the covers were removed in the late 1700s. The current stone bridges were constructed in 1865.

Defensive since the 13th century, what is now extant forms a wonderful legacy. Fortunate we are that three of the robust towers are still to be admired and enjoyed.

As the name implies they were originally covered with wooded roofs and galleries were used to display various aspects of art.

Albeit the removal of the roofs occurred in the 1780s, they continued as bridges. This development was prompted by the construction of the nearby Barrage Vauban, which remains covered and is also a gem worth traversing.

My wife and I visited the Pont Couverts during an excursion on a Viking Rhine River Cruise this past April. It is amazing to think that the bridges were opened in 1250. The name Pont Couverts means ‘covered bridges’ but the roofs were removed in 1784 but the name has remained. They were a picturesque part of our walking tour of La Petit France in Strasbourg.

Nice walk from little France, barrière Vauban over the covered bridge (that is not covered anymore). Ice view but from the barrière it, much better.

This part of Strasbourg has a slightly different feel than the main downtown area, and it is incredible. I truly feel the medieval vibes here. Loved walking the bridges.
