Historical picture of the Jungfernbrücke in HamburgThe entirely wrought-iron bridge Jungfernbruecke across the customs channel (Zollkanal) in Hamburg, Germany (home of ARTEFICIA NAVALIS), was completed in 1888 – after two years of construction.

She connects St. Catherine’s Churchyard with the historical warehouse district (Speicherstadt) where coffee, spices and other goods from all over the world have been stored. She got her name from the road that followed south: Small Jungfernstieg.
