Impressive Aquaducts

Water bridges are bridge-like structures that carry navigable waterway
canals over other rivers, valleys, railways or roads. Small ships and
boats ply on these waterways. The most popular water bridge is the
Magdeburg Water Bridge in Germany, the longest and the most impressive
in the world. Although aqueducts has been used for supplying cities with water
since centuries, they were not generally used for traffic until the
17th century when modern canal systems started to appear. The 662-metre
long aqueduct carrying the Canal latéral à la Loire over the River Loire
was built in 1896, and remained the longest navigable aqueduct in the
world until the 21st century, when the Magdeburg Water Bridge in Germany took the title.
