Dubbed “the First Bridge across the Yellow River,” it has become one of the city’s landmarks. Before its construction, there was a bateau bridge named Zhenyuan Bridge. All of the materials used in the German-designed steel bridge were imported from Germany and work on the construction was overseen by German engineers. Many people like to climb the mountain to take photos of the panoramic view of Lanzhou and the Yellow River Steel Bridge.
