Mill Bridge — Downriver, the Spreuerbrücke or Mill Bridge zigzags across the river Reuss. Constructed in 1408, it features a series of medieval-style 17th Century plague paintings by Kaspar Meglinger titled Dance of Death, that follow an artistic genre of late-medieval allegory on the universality of death: no matter one's station in life, the Dance of Death unites all. The paintings consist of the dead, or Death personified, summoning representatives from all walks of life to dance along to the grave, typically with a pope, emperor, king, child, and labourer. They were produced to remind people of the fragility of their lives and how vain were the glories of earthly life.
