Yesterday we had an encouraging meeting in Ürzig with Markus Tressel MdB (MP), tourism spokesperson for the Greens in the federal government. The overriding message is: ALL IS MOST CERTAINLY NOT LOST http://www.ulrike-hoefken.de/cms/default/dok/367/367660.geplante_hochmoselbruecke_schaedlich_fue.html
There has been some more German press recently, here are a few examples:
Hugh Johnson has written an utterly damning article for the January issue of Der Feinschmecker.
There is also a Decanter article (in the January issue) which mentions the bridge as part of a wonderful guide to the Mosel region. Please buy a copy of the magazine if you can.
