The Europa Bridge or Bridge of Europe is a 777-metre-long bridge carrying the A13 Brenner Autobahn over the 657-metre Wipp valley just south of Innsbruck, Tyrol, Austria. The bridge spans the Sill River, and forms part of the main route across the Alps from western Austria to South Tyrol in Italy. It is also part of the main route between southeastern Germany and northern Italy.
The longest span between pillars is 198 metres . Built between 1959 and 1963 and standing 190 metres high above the ground, it took the title of Europe's highest bridge, surpassing the Gueuroz Bridge in Switzerland. The Italia Viaduct took over this title in 1974.
