    In addition to the tunnel "Big slotted ear", there is another "bike highlight" in the region - the Daun Viaduct. You drive over an old railway bridge with a height of 28 meters. The view is accordingly great.

    The Daun Viaduct was built between 1907 and 1909 during the construction of the railway line Wengerohr-Daun. In 1981, the passenger traffic was discontinued, 1988 took place with the closure of freight transport, the decommissioning of the line. Already in 1990 the tracks were removed. In August 2000, a bike path was finally opened on the former railway line.
    The bridge is a stone arch bridge with five arches. At a length of 103 meters, the viaduct crosses Federal Highway 257. The height is 28 meters. The span of the arches is 16 meters. Construction work for the single-track railway viaduct was carried out by Hochtief, with construction costs of 141,000 marks.
    A short distance behind the viaduct comes a rest area. Here the story of the viaduct is told in words and pictures. Also, you have a nice view of Daun and the Dauner Burgberg.

    The Maare-Moselle cycle path is peppered with wonderful highlights. It is best to sit in the bike bus in Bernkastel-Kues and get up early in the morning to Daun. Then you can enjoy the "departure" on the old railway line. A detour to the Eifel bell foundry Brockscheid and to the Vulkanhof goat dairy is worthwhile.

    The Dauner Viaduct is a former railway bridge on the Wengerohr-Daun railway line near Daun. Today, the Maare-Moselle cycle path leads across the viaduct. From the bridge there is a charming view of the city of Daun.

    Since August 2000 there has been a cycle path on the former railway line, the Maare-Mosel cycle path. At the beginning it leads over the Daun Viaduct and is always nice to drive.

    Striking viaduct in Daun. It is best to take pictures when coming in from the highway to Daun, or from the petrol station at the viaduct

    The Daun Viaduct was built between 1907 and 1909 when the Wengerohr-Daun railway line was built. In 1981 passenger traffic was discontinued, and in 1988 the line was closed down when freight traffic ceased. The tracks were already removed in 1990. In August 2000, a cycle path was finally opened on the former railway line.
    The bridge is a stone arch bridge with five arches. The viaduct crosses the federal highway 257 over a length of 103 meters. The height is 28 meters. The span of the arches is 16 meters. The construction work for the single-track railway viaduct was carried out by the Hochtief company, the construction costs amounted to 141,000 marks.
    A rest stop comes a short distance behind the viaduct. Here the story of the viaduct is told in words and pictures. You also have a beautiful view of Daun and the Daun castle hill.
