    The ore railway bridge No. 6 spans the Alte and Neue Günnigfelder Strasse near the track tip. It is approx. 100 meters long and consists of a riveted blue steel trough that rests on two delicate central supports and thus has three bridge fields. As a special feature from experience with subsidence in this area, the bridge can be raised. This allows it to adapt to subsidence. At the bridge there is a staircase that allows you to leave the ore railway line here (at least on foot or with a bike on your back) and to look at the structure from below. The two double-track abutments and the two red central supports of the bridge built in the late 1920s are striking.Source:

    The ore railway line is a former railway line that has been expanded into a cycle path. The route begins at the Zoom Erlebniswelt in Gelsenkirchen and ends in Bochum at the Jahrhunderthalle. The route has several very imposing bridges where the heavy freight trains used to pass. The route is very popular and therefore very busy in summer.
