    At the railway bridge in Griethausen, which has been listed as a historical monument, you can often see people stopping and taking photos of this beautiful bridge👌
    By the way, the Griethausen Bridge is the oldest railway bridge in Central Europe, which was built almost 150 years ago.
    Today it is actually pointless. It's just there, now, tomorrow; and until it's rusted through.

    It was built in 1863-1865 by the Rhenish Railway Company with the construction of the links Lower Rhine route from Cologne via Neuss, Krefeld and Kleve to the Dutch North Sea ports under the direction of Emil Hermann Hartwich and led over a dead arm of the Rhine in the direction of Elten and on Zevenaar in the Netherlands. The passenger traffic over the bridge to Griethausen existed until 1960, the goods traffic to a lying in Spyck directly on the Rhine oil mill until 1987. Then the distance including the bridge was shut down. For some time, considerations have been made to create a bike path on the entire bridge. Their excellent entertainment status would make the project very cost effective. Source Wikipedia

    There is an old Rhine bridge nearby for cars, pedestrians and cyclists. From there you can take very nice photos of this old railway bridge.

    While it is possible to take a break there, it is forbidden to enter the bridge. Was sold 2016 in the context of an auction for 60.000 € to an architect from the Klever room.
