  • 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!
  • Very impressive.
  • The highest brick bridge in the world! And is it still regularly used. If you have ever seen, already impressive the sight. Below the bridge there is a small souvenir shop and a museum dedicated to the bridge and the mill also. 4 stars because it's just a bridge and now also not super spectacular...

  • There was a few years ago and of course this bridge watched. This is an absolute must for railway enthusiasts. Equally interesting, the little sister, the Elster Valley bridge, close to. After the Göltzsch, she considered second-largest brick bridge in the world.
