  • Handsome built viaduct with 26 million bricks. See 1 of the photo, s there is a small P place just for it. On the picture you can also see the back of my van that I had, and that gives a good idea how huge the viaduct. Though the panorama picture is misleading, because viaduct is sleek and straight and not around.

  • There is the largest brick bridge in the world, the Göltzsch between Mylau and Greiz sächsich-Thuringian border. This technical marvel was built shortly after the release of the first railways in Germany. It was so big that 23 000 trees had to be sacrificed to the scaffolding alone. Meanwhile the bridge had grown to again extremely what you finally changed a few weeks ago and again uncovered so the look. At that time the bridge was an engineering feat, designed for speeds of trains - about 35 km/h. That this bridge can withstand even today's stresses, was neither charged nor likely. There was still no generally accepted scientific theory calculating of bridges with the mathematically prove settled the carrying capacity. (With) Builder and designer was the German engineer Johann Andreas Schubert, who came from the nearby Wernesgrün (Vogtland). Schubert created an own design. He explored the principles to the construction and based on his calculations, he could accurately calculate the construction and guarantee a safe bridge. The first functional steam locomotive, the «Saxonia» was formed under his leadership Also the mysterious final stone of the bridge should be mentioned. During GDR times, it was thought in the environment that the Red five-pointed star was subsequently applied by the Soviets. However, historical analyses have shown that this at first took his place and was an indication of the affiliation of the bridge designers to a famous Masonic lodge in Dresden.

  • This is the most insane bridge ever. It's so huge that it's hard to find a place from where you can see it in its entirety. And the whole thing is made out of bricks!
  • it's too far from the train station.you need to walk more than 25 minute
  • Very impressive.
  • Wow
  • An impressive structure of German architecture. So, it stands on a bend in the bridge. We can only confirm that. Brick building of the particular art. A must, this factory German building. We were there today and looked about us. Were also fortunate that a train ran on her. We say thank you.
