Müngstener Brücke

It is the highest railroad bridge in Germany: 107 meters high and 465 meters long, Müngstener Brücke spans the valley of the Wupper where it is most beautiful. The arch has a span of a remarkable 170 meters. 5,000 tons of steel were used, yet the massive structure appears light and delicate, almost seeming to grow out of the surrounding forests. It was opened to traffic in 1897 and has been a listed building since 1995.  To this day, it is an important rail link between Remscheid and Solingen. This is to remain so in the future. That's why Deutsche Bahn has spent eight years restoring the line to its former glory. Since 2021, it has been shining in new glory. 

It is a landmark and popular destination in the region: the Brückenpark Müngsten at its feet is surrounded by forests and protected nature. From meadows, beaches and viewing balconies above the water, there are always new views up to the impressive steel giant. The park was created in 2006 during the Regionale, as a joint project of Remscheid, Solingen and Wuppertal, the three major cities of the Bergisches Land.
