The Ludendorff Bridge was a railway bridge across the Rhine between the towns of Remagen and Erpel. It was situated between two lines of hills that flanked the Rhine River. On March 7,1945 the Allies captured the Ludendorff Bridge when the explosives planted by the Germans failed to bring the bridge down. The remaining towers of the bridge house a museum. See more
The superstructure of the real Ludendorff Bridge remained intact after the explosion. As depicted in the film, the German demolition charges were placed only on critical points on and under the roadbed and railroad tracks. The damage was mostly to girders connecting the road bed to the superstructure. There are many photos of the Ludendorff Bridge in American hands after the battle with the superstructure largely undamaged. See more
