Solingen, Germany - 11th November 2012

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
the weather forecast promised great weather for today, so we decided to take a walk around Muengsten bridge, Germany's highest railway bridge.

Muengsten bridge is connecting the cities of Remscheid and Solingen, crossing the valley of river Wupper.

We walked through the forest, there are some playgrounds. Here we found those rocking sheep.

It only took a short walk to reach the bridge, that means, one of the places where it is fixed to the slope of the valley.

The bridge is 465 m long and 107 m tall at its highest point, built in late 19th century.
Here you can see the bridge overspanning the valley, river Wupper underneath the bridge.

The first houses of the district Burg came into sight.

On the hill opposite of us Schloss Burg was visible, a medieval castle. This district was named after it.

Burg is one of several historic districts of Solingen, also in the valley of river Wupper.

To get back to the car we walked along the opposite bank of river Wupper, here was the last opportunity to cross the river.

Our path went uphill and downhill, sometimes along steep rocks.

We reached the bottom of the valley than. A leisure park was built under the bridge a few years ago. You can find a crazy golf course here, lawns with benches for relaxing, playgrounds for the kids and restaurants.

This walk took us more than two hours, much more than we had expected :)

Bye
Little T.B.
