This bridge is actually a series of spans on either side of the U-Bahn-Station Währinger Straße, which is a historic station built in 1898. It is assumed the bridge spans were constructed at the same time. The spans lead directly to the station and thus are an integral part of the station's aesthetics. The girder spans are made beautiful by the use of ornamental fascias as well as richly decorated piers.

Span and overall lengths given above are rough estimates. The overall length shown includes the section of track at the station platform.
