It was a highly unusual choice of location for a romantic rendezvous, police in Frankfurt point out.


A drunk 28-year-old and his equally sloshed 18-year-old girlfriend clambered onto one of the arches of the Kaiserlei Bridge in Frankfurt at around 11am on Thursday “and didn’t just enjoy the view,” according to police.

Drivers approaching the bridge, which crosses the mighty Main river, spotted the couple and alerted the police.

Officers decided they would have to close down two lanes of the Autobahn in order to make room for the ladders which fire services used to approach the love-makers.

Shortly after, the firemen managed to bring the pair back to the cold hard ground, and within 20 minutes traffic was running as normal.

After taking down their details, officers sent the love-drunk pair away with an order not to return to the scene of the crime.

In the recent past, alcohol was also responsible for a stretch of the Autobahn being closed.
At the end of May a truck driver failed to tie down his cargo of beer crates properly, leading to thousands of bottles smashing over the A9 between Munich and Berlin.
