    The Bietschtalbrücke is a railway bridge of the Lötschbergbahn (BLS) at the so-called Südrampe. It spans the gorge of Bietschbach at a height of 78 m and a length of 136 m. The steel bridge was built in 1910-13, the steel parts were connected only with rivets, not welded. Technically particularly demanding was the mastery of the forces in the curved track guidance (radius 300 m) with simultaneous slope.On the "Südrampenweg" the bridge can be crossed on a side pedestrian walkway, a shorter route variant. Especially impressive is the circuit on the slightly longer path that leads further into the gorge (Via Alpina route), minimum level of surefootedness and vertigo but required.

    Imposing iron construction over the gorge.

    Can be easily reached via the BLS south ramp.
    Incidentally, it is also available as a model from the Faller company for model railways.

    The Bietschtalbrücke is certainly another highlight of the hike. You can see very nicely how they torment the heavy freight trains up the 28 ‰ steep ramp. Unfortunately, the express trains have disappeared since the tunnel existed. Unfortunately, the sequence of trains is no longer so close.

    Worth going on the Guided VF Tour & it might include the bridge...

    Very nice hiking route: in front of and behind the Bietschtalbrücke the path leads through many stone tunnels 👌
