Abstrait: Even though their span length is limited by material properties as well as their shape is limited by requirements subject to durability, well-designed timber footbridges can be impressive and aesthetic constructions. Motivated by that, we present four timber footbridge examples, which have been erected in the province of Styria (Austria) in the last two decades. Thereby, we not only focus on the main topics ‘deck construction’, ‘structural system’ and ‘constructive wood protection’, but also on the varying boundary conditions influencing the project’s realisation process. In major cases, civil engineering students educated at Graz University of Technology, especially by the Institute of Timber Engineering and Wood Technology, played an important role in this process. Finally and with regard to the projects presented, we summarise the major principles to be considered when designing timber footbridges.
