Original medieval bridge

Krämerbrücke is in Erfurt, Germany, spans 86 yards, and has been around for about 1000 years. The walkway is an ordinary village street surrounded on both sides by houses that people live in, and every year they have a festival that celebrates the Middle Ages. It's a cool architectural idea that didn't catch on in a big way, but makes one think about what could have been if bridges hadn't evolved in a more minimalistic, function-oriented direction.
