Tips

  • Sebastian ⚒⛰🏕

    The Hetzdorf Viaduct is 43m high, 328m long, has 4 large and 13 small arches. It consists of blue-gray gneiss, granite and Pirna sandstone and stretches over the Flöhatal in a radius of 572 m.
    Based on a resolution of the state parliament in 1864 to expand the Oederan - Flöha railway line, construction of the bridge designed by chief engineer Sorge began in 1866. About 450 workers were employed in the construction and the costs amounted to 550,000 thalers (about 1.65 million marks).
    The bridge was already there as a completed structure in 1868 and on September 23 the first locomotive drove over it for a stress test.
    A high level of stress from rail traffic, in connection with the curved shape, caused a lot of damage to the bridge and so it was decided on January 10, 1986 to build two new bridges. When these two bridges, which currently span the Flöhatal, went into operation on May 12, 1992, they were shut down and you can enjoy its structural beauty.
    Thanks to the work of many ABM workers, the bridge was made accessible and hiking trails were created in the area.

  • There is a small wooden hut on the bridge. It is called "To the stone bridge veteran". In 2022, this will be managed on Ascension Day and Pentecost (Sunday and Monday).
