Muengstener Bruecke, Remscheid
Categories: Bridges, Tourist Spots
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.

Yes, it is a tourist attraction and Kaiser Wilhelm II. was already on this bridge, which was also used his name. A visit to the bridge, which is the highest railway bridge in Germany, as well as the surrounding environment is recommended! It would please me if my small contribution of experience could be somewhat helpful to you.show original
