Europabrücke, or Europe's bridge, is a 777 meters long bridge spanning the 657 meters Wipp valley just south of Innsbruck, Tirol, Austria. The A13 Brenner Autobahn (and European route E45) passes over this bridge, above the Sill River, forming part of the main route from western Austria to Italy via South Tirol across the Alps. It is also part of the main route between southeastern Germany and northern Italy.
The longest span between pillars is 198 meters built between 1959 and 1963, it was once Europe's highest bridge, standing 192 meters high above the ground, until it was topped out by France's Millau Viaduct on 14 December 2004.
