The Den Uendelige Bro (The Never Ending Bridge) is a spectacular circular structure sited in the shallow waters of the Thors Møllebæk River in Aarhus, Denmark. The bridge offer to its visitors breathtaking views over the country, the nearby Varna Palace, as well as forests and surrounding waters. It measured 623 feet in circumference and about 197 feet in diameter.
The location of Den Uendelige Bro held a special meaning to Denmark’s port, and it existed at the former site of a historic jetty. “From 1897 until World War II, steamships sailed from the town along the coast towards Riis Forest to the north and the Marselisborg woods in the south,” Gjøde & Povlsgaard Arkitekter explain. “Along that coast were a number of piers, including Varna Palace in the Marselisborg Forests, which was a popular destination among city residents. Sailing routes that linked the city, the bay and the characteristic woodland along the coast gave the city its special identity.”
The rich history, coupled with scenic views, also made it an ideal place to host weddings. It’s great for relaxing and meditation or just chilling, sunbathing or swimming.
