Relative Clauses

Read about San Francisco and practice your relative clauses!

The Golden Gate Bridge connects the city of San Francisco and San Francisco (Halbinsel) Peninsula. It spans the Golden Gate, a (Meerenge) strait between the Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco Bay–that’s where the name Golden Gate Bridge comes from.

Construction on the bridge began in 1933 and was completed in 1937. The bridge rises 230 m above the water. With its total length of 1970 meters it was the longest (Hängebrücke) suspension bridge in the world until 1964. The bridge is part of the United States Highway 101, has six (Fahrspuren) lanes and a footpath on each side.
