    You should wait there until the barrier is opened. This can take a few minutes ..

    A cool yet functional relic from the past - really a funny experience to "call" the head office and ask for opening of the barrier :-)

    You have to ring the bell to open the barrier. After operating the lever, a nice person answers and talks to you - no computer.
    I've never seen anything like it before.

    A safe transition for hikers on the railway line Cologne - Gerolstein. Shortly press the lever on the yellow box and the barrier will open, if not a train is approaching, otherwise you have to wait a moment.

    Like in a railway museum! I thought that after pressing the lever, a mechanism would be activated that lifts the barrier. But far from it! A railway employee actually answers (probably from the train station in Satzvey) and asks in a friendly manner how he can help. When I asked to open the gate, it was lifted as if by magic. It's great that something like this still exists in our high-tech times!

    A safe way to get over the railroad tracks here.

    The level crossing is currently closed due to construction work. When planning a hike, it is important to note that currently you can only legally cross the tracks in Satzvey.

    Works reliably and well. Press the button, hold it down and ask to open the barrier. You get a friendly reply and in our case almost immediate opening.
    On the other hand, I then announced that we had passed, whereupon the barriers closed again.

    When we stood there yesterday, nothing happened! Wait, push the lever several times ... NOTHING! No answer from the box. If you don't want to cross the rails, go right over a small bridge and follow a beaten path in the forest. You come out again just before the road to the train station. A really nice path that leads to a small chapel.

    The technical term is "call barrier". Really a nice curiosity:

    You now have to walk past a gate (follow the footpath) over the track. The lever through which the barriers have to be raised is not working.
