Here are the featured products you will see this holiday season at the shop:

2013 Calendar on Iowa’s Truss Bridges:  This calendar showcases the finest vintage truss bridges serving the Hawkeye State with information on the location, bridge type and other facts for each of the bridges featured. Proceeds will go towards the book project on Iowa’s historic truss bridges, which started earlier this year and is currently in full gear.


2013 Calendar on the Bridges of Germany:  This calendar features a wide array of bridges that are unique for the Bundesrepublik, ranging from the Kramer House Bridge in Erfurt to the Balduin Bridge in Coblence (both part of UNESCO’s World Heritage), the Oberbaum Bridge in Berlin to the Bridge of Friendship in Flensburg, with facts and information for you to enjoy, let alone to use as an incentive to visit these places.


2013 Wall Calendar Rendsburg High Bridge: Available both in German and in English, the 2013 wall calendar features one of the finest technical treasures that is a must see, while visiting Germany: The Rendsburg High Bridge (German: Die Rendsburger Hochbruecke). Built in 1913 by Friedrich Voss and spanning the Baltic-North Sea Canal (German: Nord-Ostsee Kanal), the bridge is one of the rarest in the world, for its main span features a cantilever truss span on top and a transporter span at the bottom. In addition, it has an elliptical approach span that soars above the city of Rendsburg with its concrete arch and steel trestles. Apart from the beautiful pic taken by the author, there are two other incentives for you to buy this product: the bridge will be 100 years old next year and is up for nomination to be listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site!
Plus there are many other products for you to choose from. Please check out the site and if you see something you like, there are many ways to order.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the author at the Chronicles at flensburg.bridgehunter.av@googlemail.com.
