Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / North Rhine-Westphalia / Remscheid / Sightseeing / Muengstener Bruecke
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.

Also, you can combine the visit well with a small hike around the bridge Park or a bike ride. If you arrive by car to the bridge Park of Müngsten bridge's offer is to Park (there are only a few parking spaces directly at the bridge Park) directly on a large parking lot on the main road.

Because previously it was there not very pleasant. Now, I was quite pleasantly surprised. Environment all it is clear that one can simply super walk in this environment! Ice can eat, eat lunch, enjoy beer garden or play mini-golf has one in this system. In summer in hot days, the Müngsten bridge is crowded but perfectly and is so limited. Conclusion who would like to do a little trip with the family, can get at this Geschichtsträchtigen bridge like times past!
