Paleisbrug is a raised park and pedestrian bridge all in one

Benthem Crouwel Architects have just completed the Paleisbrug, a 250 meter (820 foot) pedestrian and cycle bridge that connects the Dutch city of 's-Hertogenbosch with a new district, Paleiskwartier, on the other side of the tracks. But not only tracks; the architects write:

During the Eighty Year War, 's-Hertogenbosch was defended by having the surrounding landscape flooded (inundated). A lot of land is still not developed, which means 's-Hertogenbosch still borders onto an open green area, the Gement. The Gement is unique from both a historical and scenic point of view.
