    The Ruhrtal bridge in the south of Mülheim on the border with Essen is the longest road bridge made of steel in Germany at 1,830 meters. The building runs as part of the Federal Highway 52 in east-west direction.

    The bridge spans the Ruhr valley in a wide arc and connects the cities of Düsseldorf and Essen via the A52 motorway. This section of the road used to be the freeway-like Federal Highway 288. The bridge is still one of Europe's most important bridge construction projects after the Second World War. The building rests on 18 hollow pillars. The highest roadway height is 65 m above the Ruhr.

    The Ruhrtalbrücke today swings in an 1830 m long, elegant arc over the Mülheim Ruhr valley. It is the longest steel bridge in Germany

    uh ... is not that a pure highway bridge of the A52? I do not think there's a good idea with the bike over there ...

    Ruhrtal bike path or towpath. Ice in Kettwig directly at the bridge or in Mülheim near Plati
