The Kienlesberg Bridge is a combined tram, cyclist and pedestrian bridge crossing a busy railway site in Ulm, Germany, spanning 14 railway tracks.

The 270m-long crossing is the keystone in Ulm's new Line 2 network, providing a north‐south connection linking the city centre with the science park.

The undulating appearance of the structure is a well-considered response to the flow of forces within the static system. The sinuous silhouette of the top beams and the distinctive pair of trusses crossing the biggest 75-metre-long span, are an homage to the nearby Neutor Bridge, a listed historic monument built in 1907.

This project has been longlisted in the infrastructure project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
