Austria: Europe Bridge and Brenner Motorway

On Tuesday I got fourteen cards from Austria.

One of them shows the Europe Bridge and the Brenner Motorway. The Europe Bridge was built between 1959 and 1963 and was then the highest bridge in Europe. Today it is still Europe's highest beam bridge. The Brenner Motorway was the first motorway crossing among the Alpine main chains. It connects Innsbruck in Austria and Modena in Italy and is today a major European trunk route.
I bought this card on my way to Milan and sent it during my holidays in Austria.

With a great "related" stamp:
Eurovision Song Contest (issued 24-04-2015)
The stamp is printed on silver foil.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2015 was the 60th edition of the annual musical event. It took place in Vienna following Conchita Wurst's victory in 2014. The slogan of the contest was Building Bridges.
