Muengstener Bruecke, Remscheid

4.6
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Remscheid
Spanning the river Wupper, Muengstener Bruecke is Germany's highest steel railroad bridge and a feat of Victorian-era engineering. Constructed from 1893 to 1897 and designed by architect Anton von Rippel, the 107 m (351 ft) bridge mystified local townspeople, who had never seen such a complex structure. Entranced by its seemingly miraculous construction, they spread rumors, such as last rivet to be fastened was made of pure gold and that half of the bridge had to be demolished because the two halves didn't fit together. Today, you can gaze up at the bridge from the park below, where locals enjoy hiking, running, and relaxing along the river. Several snack bars, cafes, tree-shaded walkways, and playgrounds invite you to stay awhile and enjoy this tranquil spot. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Remscheid trip simple and quick.

  • This old a little more metal bridge of a century and top of 106 meters is currently under renovation. Stayed for a long time the largest railway bridge of Germany it was built so many factories and regional development companies. Today it is the starting point for a beautiful walk along the Wupper River, up to the castle of Schloss Burg. It's nice to get there by train and then down the Valley through the forest.

  • I was really excited as a child with my primary-school class, often at the Müngsten bridge, but when I came back there after years, was I, the whole "trappings" has become beautiful. The gastronomy, the small ferry, the great hiking trails... It's always right there again, a trip for the whole family! Will stop by now sure more often there again...

  • The Müngsten bridge is a great destination for the whole family. There are many hiking trails around the bridge in the beautiful Woods of the river Wupper mountains. Super is also a canoe trip in this environment ;-)

  • A small kiosk that is not indispensable in the bridge Park. Also a mini golf course is one of the kiosk. All in all is lovingly prepared and coffee, Bergische waffles and Wupper mud can here when the weather glorious be relaxed. The concrete crumbles off part of the mini golf courses or is an or contain other bump but this does not detract from the joy of playing. In addition, the owners are friendly and the facility is very clean. We like to come back.
