    Impressive structure. On this side of the Ruhr you can drive on the slope very close to the bridge pillars.

    Let's ride around the bridge. In front of it is a small historic city center, below it's delicious cake soon afterwards. So an overall very rewarding section. Not just a punctual highlight.

    Hostages have already been held in one of the massive pillars. In addition, numerous suicides found a suitable place here to put an end to their lives. The somewhat scary aspect is completely hidden, because this monument of German engineering stands in a wonderful valley.
