An innovative bicycle bridge has opened at the Overloon War Museum in The Netherlands.
The new feature allows cyclists to view the exhibition free of charge via a cycle path that runs from the main road and literally goes through the museum.
The bicycle bridge will be officially opened in March 2020, but became operational on September 26.
The time until the official opening in March will be used as a test period.
The bridge is part of the ‘On the other side’ bicycle route that connects the museum with nearby British and German military cemeteries.
The bridge was opened during the 75th anniversary of Operation Market Garden and the advance to the Battle of Overloon.
During the museum’s opening hours, cyclists can cycle through the large hall over a length of 90 meters and at a height of three meters. The bridge offers a great view of the enormous World War Two collection, which consists of more than 100 military vehicles and cannons.
The bridge is open at the following times:
- Monday to Friday 10am to 4.30pm
- Saturday and Sunday 11am to 4.30pm
