Road Cycling Highlight
The route of industrial culture describes the building as a “viaduct like a picture book”. The concrete arch bridge, clad with natural stone, spans the Ruhr valley with 20 arches over a length of 716 meters. The route runs over the viaduct in an arc with a minimum radius of 500 meters. With a width of 8.2 meters, the structure covers an area of 5,877 square meters. Construction of the viaduct began in 1913 at the same time as the construction of the railway line from Witten to Schwelm and was completed in 1916.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruhr-Viadukt_(Witten)

The viaduct blends in wonderfully in an environment that is already very varied. In the direction of the weather, you can catch a glimpse of the Hohenstein shortly after the viaduct.
Warning: large icicles can occasionally form in winter. In the direction of travel, it drips on the left side of the bike path. A small ice hill forms there, which should be observed.
