Are you sure this isn't a "caption this" picture?

Thanks to Solar Eagle, I barely need to post an answer to last week's blog. The Limmat Footbridge and Promenade Lift, designed by Leuppi & Schafroth Architekten in 2007, was intended to connect the towns of Ennetbaden and Baden in Switzerland as they are separated by the Limmat River. According to the architects, “a direct access for pedestrians and bicyclists has been needed for decades.” In fact, the footbridge is “situated on the same location where a cable ferry over the river once existed.”

I came across this building in a list of ten incredible works of architecture photographed in fall.

I guess the bicyclists still have issues riding up and down the stairwell! LOL!
