Lumiere 308: Bâle – Le pont sur le Rhin, 1896

  • Switzerland

A virtual replica of the Old Rhine Bridge (replaced by the Middle Bridge) was created using 3D graphics software and original plans. The buildings and objects reconstructed to scale on the Kleinbasel side are covered with textures from contemporary photographs. In a tracking shot from the Grossbasel to the Kleinbasel side, viewers are guided past various points of information worth knowing about the bridge and its surroundings.
