Lanzhou's sign, the 100-year-old railway bridge, is still allowed for vehicles to pass on the bridge deck before 2015. Now, in order to better protect and prolong the life of the bridge, no vehicles have been allowed to pass (except manpower vehicles). The willow trees on the Bank of the Yellow River are shady. If you have leisure, you can ask for pot tea or beer at the tea stand on the bank, drink tea, eat snacks, and enjoy the scenery of the Yellow River railway bridge in a comfortable and quiet way. After tea and leisure, you can also go for a walk along the Yellow River, where pebbles are piled up waiting for you to discover that there are different shapes and sizes. Picking up a piece of Yellow River stone as a tourist souvenir, I am lucky to pick up a favorite stone (see figure below), which is also a great harvest of this trip. Another landmark "Mother of the Yellow River" city sculpture in Lanzhou City is about 20 minutes to the east. This sculpture was erected in 84 years and produced by Beijing Sculpture Factory. This sculpture perfectly illustrates the Yellow River as the spiritual birthplace of the descendants of the Yellow River. Like a mother, it nourishes Chinese children with its sweet milk and achieves a splendid Chinese civilization of five thousand years. It deserves to be the mother river of the Chinese nation.
The Yellow River Railway Bridge, also known as Zhongshan Bridge, is located at the foot of Baita Mountain in the north of Lanzhou City and in front of Jinchengguan. It is one of the landmark buildings in Lanzhou. Tieqiao was built in the late Qing Dynasty and is the first perennial bridge built on the Yellow River. Therefore, it has the reputation of "the first bridge in the world". The length of the bridge is more than 200 meters, the width is 7-8 meters, the body of the black iron bridge is very elegant and simple. It is said that the iron bridge was built in Germany at that time, especially all the construction materials, including a rivet, an iron bar and even the paint used for brushing the iron bridge after it was built, all come from Germany. Germany has guaranteed the quality of the railway bridge, which has remained above the Yellow River for a hundred years. Watching and visiting the railway bridge, besides walking close to it personally, it is also a good choice to observe the whole view of the railway bridge on the Baita Mountain and Lanzhou city.
The original charm of a city is the sunrise, but the most nostalgic and reluctant to leave is the sunset. Watching the sunset on the Yellow River Railway Bridge in Lanzhou now, Yuhui puts on the charming golden clothes on both sides of the Yellow River in Lanzhou, which gives the city a quiet feeling, especially warm and moving! You won't leave without seeing the sun go down completely and it's almost dark!
The Yellow River crossing the city makes Lanzhou different from other cities on the one side of a thousand cities. The Yellow River Railway Bridge, the first bridge of the Yellow River in a century, is still strong on the Yellow River, which is also a miracle. If you come to Lanzhou for the first time, you are advised to climb Baita Mountain, climb up the steps and look back at the Yellow River at your feet. You will realize the magnificence of the Yellow River. If you want to experience a leisurely life and spend 20 yuan on a cup of tea, you can sit on a big boat moored on the Henan bank for a whole day and watch the sheepskin raft paddle across the water... Tieqiao White Tower is the most soul of Lanzhou, I think.
The Yellow River Bridge is world-renowned. It is the honor of Gansu Province that Lanzhou is the only city where the Wanli Yellow River passes through the city. It is located in a narrow valley extending from east to west, sandwiched between the north and South mountains. The Yellow River passes through the city at the foot of Jiuzhou Mountain in the north of the city. Along the southern bank of the Yellow River, a riverside road of more than 50 kilometers East-West has been opened, and the unique urban flavor line of the Yellow River has been built, which is called the "Bund" of Lanzhou. In order to build Lanzhou into a modern city with beautiful mountains and rivers, prosperous economy and civilized society, Lanzhou Municipal Government has planned the Baili Yellow River scenic line, covering Xiliugou in Xigu Industrial Zone in the west, Sangyuan Gorge in Chengguan District in the East and west, 40 kilometers in length, and 27.44 square kilometers in drainage area. Construction began in 2000. In less than eight years, the two sides of the Yellow River have successively built sightseeing corridors, "Source of Life" water landscape sculptures, fable city sculptures, Yellow River mother sculptures, green hope sculptures, westward travel sculptures, Pingsha goose sculptures, near-water square, hydrophilic platform, Donghu music fountain, Yellow River music fountain, people and nature square, as well as Longyuan Park, sports park, spring garden, autumn garden, summer garden, winter garden, Green Park and other riverside landscape. The Yellow River originated in Qinghai and flows through Lanzhou City waters are not as open as its downstream. However, Lanzhou people have invested a lot of money to build a 40-kilometer Yellow River style line in recent years, which has become the preferred place for people's leisure and entertainment. Even some tourists in the South praise its beauty. Although there is no "the water of the Yellow River comes from the sky" momentum, but like a modern "Qingming Shanghe Tu", people face the beautiful scenery, admiration. Lanzhou built along the Yellow River, like a string of bright pearls, attracts tourists from all over the world. It is said that Lanzhou is ready to put "two mountains, two lines and two gardens" into the agenda of the construction of the Yellow River amorous feelings line in order to create "the national excellent tourist city".
Lanzhou must travel, at 5:00 p.m. to the bridge, sit on the boat tea bar beside the bridge and light a few snacks. In a drizzling rain, three turrets come to watch the sunset west and the night falls on the Huadeng at the beginning. Zhongshan Bridge, Baita Mountain, Grand Mosque, Longyuan Park and so on emit charm under the effect of colorful lights. They light up the night of Lanzhou, and the windmill corridor that babies like. With the wind turning and brushing sounding at night, sitting on the upstream ship to swim in the Yellow River at night, listening to the commentator explaining the origin of the landscape everywhere and the scenery along the historical route, watching everyone cheer and jump to be overwhelmed by the beautiful scenery, although Jinan has also gone to the Yellow River for N times, but without the feeling of Lanzhou, Lanzhou people have developed the Yellow River to the extreme, it is too wonderful to say anything about, it is a worthwhile trip!
Lanzhou Yellow River Railway Bridge, also known as Zhongshan Bridge, was renamed in 1942 to commemorate Dr. Sun Yat-sen. It is located in the middle section of Lanzhou Binhe Road, under the Baita Mountain. It is the oldest ancient bridge in Lanzhou and the first bridge in the real sense on the Yellow River. It is known as the "First Bridge of the Yellow River under the World". The Zhongshan Bridge is the most anticipated one in the city. At noon, we arrived at Zhongshan Bridge. There were a lot of tourists, and they had a sense of time. Built in Guangxu, there were a lot of buses from downtown to "Zhongshan Bridge" stop, just get off. The whole bridge is a pedestrian bridge, and the night view is superb. Need to note that there are always monk-like elderly people on Zhongshan Bridge who take their hands and say they give them to you free of charge. They are open-minded. They say you have a full heaven and a rich and noble face. But don't take the things in his hands. You will find you in the next place. In fact, they will ask for money in disguise. Even if you give them back immediately, they will always be entangled with you. Zhongshan Bridge is the Baita Mountain Park and Qinqiang Museum, including Zhongshan Bridge, which is a free attraction. There are many buildings and historic sites on Baita Mountain. It is worth visiting to take the best view of Tieqiao and Lanzhou from mountain climbing. In the middle of the Dazhong Lane, which is one stop away from Zhongshan Bridge, there is Ma Zilu Beef Noodle General Store, which has a plain face of seven yuan, just to replenish energy.

The North Bank of Tieqiao is another landmark building in Lanzhou - Baita Mountain & Baita Temple
Zhongshan Bridge, also known as the Yellow River Railway Bridge, does not accept admission tickets now. The railway station gets off and takes No. 1 to Xiguanshi, then strolls around and goes straight along Zhongshan Road. It takes about 5 minutes to reach Zhongshan Bridge. The scenery is really good. Next to it is Baita Mountain Park. The scenery at the top of the mountain is really beautiful. You can overlook Lanzhou City and watch the Yellow River pass through the city. It is the first time to see the Yellow River so close.
