Hasle-Rüegsau Covered Bridge

Another cover from Hasle-Rüegsau, Switzerland. The postmarks on this cover show an image of the covered wooden bridge near Hasle that crosses the Emme river. It is a Swiss heritage site and apparently the largest covered wood span bridge in Europe at almost 60m in length. It was built in 1839 and moved in the 1950's so a modern replacement bridge could be constructed in its place.
