Steinitzsteg crosses the Danube and New Danube and connects the 20th and 21 District with the Danube Island and the Hubertusdamm. It was built from 1994 to 1996 as a compensation for the one-way blockade of the north bridge during its refurbishment. From January to December 1996, the bridge was used as a two-lane detour route for traffic. Since then, the new bridge is an attractive link for pedestrians and bicyclists. The bridge is named after Wilhelm Steinitz, who is a well known chess world champion.
