Muengstener Bruecke, 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.

  • After years I was recently again the Müngsten bridge. The view from the Park on the high bridge is always impressive. You can nice walk under the bridge, make a stop in the cafe or restaurant, relax on the sunbathing lawn, and also play mini golf. Very rewarding for a Sunday drive!

  • 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.
