Fodor's Review

The fateful story of Remagen Bridge and Hitler's final months is brought to life at this compact museum housed in one of the famous bridge's towers. Built during World War I, Remagen bridge was the last surviving crossing point over the Rhine in the waning days of WWII and a crucial German line of defense. On March 7, 1945 allied forces approached the Rhine and finding the bridge still standing, a major surprise still referred to as "the miracle of Remagen," were able to overcome German defenders and bring in six divisions before the bridge's collapse ten days later. The remains of the bridge and museum are a scenic 15-minute walk from the old town along the Pheinpromenade.
