Remscheid, Germany - 27th February 2010

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
the weather was much better today so we took a walk in the forest. Katja was picked up by her friend Kerstin, who brought her dog Pepe with her. We parked the car on a parking site for hikers at one of the outer limits of Remscheid's municipal area.

From here we crossed the district "Unterburg" which belongs to the neighbour city Solingen. It is a very old district, situated at the river Wupper.

We walked down a really steep and narrow road to reach the valley.


This church was built in the 1730's years.


A large tree was cut down recently.


Soon we reached the river Wupper. Due to snow melting it has high-water.


We followed a path along the river, uphill and downhill.


We crossed the river at t his bridge.


Close to a café we found snowdrops.


Now we followed a path on this side of the river. Again it went uphill and downhill. Here we saw high rocks.


Snow water is running down the hills everywhere.


A large bridge came in sight: Muengsten Bridge, Germany's highest railway bridge.




Finally we reached the bottom of the valley with the bridge.


Muengsten Bridge is made of steel. It is 107 m high and spans the valley of river Wupper, which is marking the border between Remscheid and the neighbour town Solingen.

The bridge is 465 m long and was completed in 1897 A.D.

A leisure park was built underneath the bridge a few years ago. You can relax on the lawns, play in the water and they have playgrounds for the kids.

I found some snow remains in front of a building!


I invited the other ToyVoyagers to play with me in the snow, but they all said that they'd be fed up with snow. They wanted no more wet feet and wet fur. What a pity!

We walked until we reached another bridge, we crossed the river here once more. In the background you can see a cute little outlook pavilion. Katja told us that we would walk along this pavilion later.


Here we are!


We rested in front of this waterfall (also snow water) for a while.


Once more we walked underneath Muengsten Bridge, this time on the slope of the valley.


When we were on our way back to the car, the sun came out.


Once more Muengsten Bridge was visible in the distance.


The sunshine does so good to me  :D
