Hi, Over a short distance a pedestrian way leads over een wooden pavement over water. So its a kind of bridge, but more like a road into a harbor or a dock. How to tag it general bridge or otherwise ?

If it is a bridge, I would tag it as a bridge and maybe use one of the proposed or user defined values from http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:bridge other possible tags (based on your description) may be found on these pages http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:man_made%3Dpier http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Harbour#Pier

Hy Srbrook, A lot of info, but not correct in this case. They made a plank pier alongside a private piece of land between the property and the surrounding waters. And it is specific not ment to be used for mooring of not allowed ships on these waters since they placed a fence between the walking route and the water (to prevent kids to fall into the water).

@Hendrikklaas Whether or not you can moor a boat at it is entirely irrelevant to whether it is in fact a pier. That's handled with the mooring tag.
