    An imposing building on the edge of the city center of Herdecke. The bridge leads the tracks over the Ruhr and Harkortsee at a height of over 30 meters. The building is 313 meters long.

    The viaduct is a railway bridge over the Ruhr. It was built in 1913 - 1916 with Natusteinen from the area. She was repeatedly damaged in the war, but repeatedly repaired. It is quite a powerful, monumental structure. It spans the Ruhr Valley at 716 meters with 20 large arcs.

    The Ruhr Viaduct is definitely one of the most interesting structures in the region. At the beginning of the Hakortsee, the railway tracks cross the Ruhr at a height of 30 meters over a length of a good 300 meters. The 12 arches with a span of 20 meters result in the remarkable picture of the viaduct, inaugurated in 1879 - a technical masterpiece of its time, which has lost none of the fascination for its viewers to this day.

    The structure, which is still endangered today by gump (scouring) on the pillars, was badly damaged in World War II and could not be used again until 1957. You have a good view of the Ruhr Viaduct from the shores of Lake Hakort - or from the water.

    The Ruhr viaduct of the Rhenish Railway, which was begun in 1877/78, was a technical masterpiece at that time. Even today, it is an imposing timeless structure.

    There was a supply point during the mammoth march. The organizers had chosen a very nice place for us.
