Muengstener Bruecke, Remscheid
(4.3/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We have aligned the wedding of our daughter here, the food was just super, super abundant, very lovingly done, taste! The operation remained until the early morning and was always friendly and helpful. Would such a celebration can aligned there ever again! Had the box click on overnight because otherwise the assessment was not sent, but an overnight stay is not possible.

  • Today, 16.10.2016 to 14:30 very long waiting time for operation! Drinks came after 25 minutes - we have dispensed with the ordering of a food then. The operating personnel (a visible person inside) was greatly overwhelmed. Tables were not cleaned, a real gift to the customers could not be perceived. Another visit not come for us here in question!

  • Delicious breakfast in pleasant surroundings. Bright open glass front with great views of the river Wupper. The operation is very very nice, helpful, courteous, unobtrusive and always in a good mood with a smile on his face. Here we go again very happy. Tip: From here you can walk very nicely to the Castle.
