    The viaduct was extensively restored and is part of the Elbschetal cycle path. The view from up there on Wetter / Wengern is really nice.

    Just plan the whole route, then you have the highlight in it. Unusually wide for such an old viaduct

    In 1934, the Elbschetal Viaduct was built as part of the Witten-Schwelm railway line.
    From 1934 to 1939 on this route daily 23 passenger trains, including 5 express trains.
    Added to this was a not inconsiderable freight traffic. The Elbschetal Viaduct consists of Ruhr sandstone.
    In 1984, the rails were dismantled. The transition over the bridge is not possible.

    The viaduct has just been expanded as a bicycle path. The entire cycle path is still under construction.

    Great bike path over the Elbe, you should take for other bike paths as a role model

    The Elbschetalbahn is a rather short but fine cycling and hiking route, which starts a bit behind Hiddinghausen and runs to Witten. Finest asphalt and very good to drive!
