    The railway bridge Dahlhausen is a former railway bridge that crosses the Ruhr between Bochum-Dahlhausen and Essen-Burgaltendorf. It is located near the former freight yard of the station Dahlhausen with the today's railway museum Dahlhausen. In 1874, a single-track bridge was opened for the Essen-Überruhr-Hagen-Vorhalle railway line of the Bergisch-Märkischen Eisenbahn-Gesellschaft from Überruhr to Burgaltendorf to Altendorf (Ruhr) station and on to Dahlhausen. It was expanded in 1927 two-pronged. During World War II the bridge was destroyed. 1951 a track was restored. The bridge is no longer used by the railway today. The rails were removed in 1991.
    The nearby steel bridge for cyclists and pedestrians was built in 1988 on the foundations of the second track.

    Here you can change the Ruhr side.
    Downstream, the left side is flat, paved and heavily frequented.
    The right side gravel, with many holes and roots, slightly hilly but much less crowded.

    After a visit to the railway museum, this sounds like the sight of the half-ruined bridge.

    Here you can see again how the railway infrastructure is being reduced more and more. What used to be very important is no longer in demand today.
    Anyone interested in the railroad should definitely visit the Railway Museum. Here you can still see the railway of the "good old days".

    On the old bridge you can walk a long way "over" the water protection area, but is only permitted to a limited extent.
