Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
Cycle over the water ... In the past, when the Opel plant in Rüsselsheim was forced to cycle around the south, the refurbishment of the sheet piling in the area of the Opelhafen offered the opportunity to extend the southern Main Cycle Path from autumn 2015 to about 440 meters lead long steel bridge.

Regional park project Opelsteg on the banks of the Main
At the Opelhafen, Rüsselsheim
2015The Opelsteg completes the long-awaited gap closure on the southern bank of the Main between the Mainspitze and Frankfurt. It runs spectacularly over a length of 440 meters along the sheet pile wall, which delimits the Opel factory site towards the Main. The 2.75 meter wide footbridge rests on 55 steel girders that stand in the river bed and are connected to the sheet pile wall of the harbor basin. From the footbridge, the balcony-like bulges and the squares on both sides of the footbridge, there are delightful views of the river and the north side of the Main with the vineyards of the Hochheim wine region.Extract from the architecture guide »Metropolitan Region Frankfurt Rhein-Main«, DOM publishers, Anna Scheuermann, Andrea Schwappach, Paul-Martin Lied
