Bike Touring Highlight
The viaduct just before Altenbeken is a real eye-catcher. The railway bridge from the 1850s is the largest limestone bridge in Europe and with its impressive age one of the oldest witnesses of the region. No wonder that the bridge is considered a landmark of Altenbeken. The 24 arched doorways are 428 meters long and form a bridge about 35 meters high. If you make your way along the road along the road to Altenbecken, you can marvel at the bridge from afar.
