The original Jungfernbrücke—built in 1798—used to be Berlin's oldest bridge, but worries about safety meant that the Dutch-style drawbridge has had to be completely reconstructed. Spanning over an arm of the Spree to the new foreign ministry building, the new bridge is an exact replica of the original—the only difference being that the present bridge does not open up. But that doesn't matter, because no ships have passed along this part of the canal for decades!
