    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.

    Coming from Neuenbeken, the cycle path starts on the left after ~ 1.5 km. In the second section, it leads along the edge of the forest. The was fastened with rough stones, not grit. K.a who has come up with something like that

    The Altenbeker railway viaduct was completed in 1853, destroyed in 1944 and rebuilt in 1950 in its present form. At 482 m over 24 arches, this is Europe's longest limestone bridge, with an impressive height of up to 35 m.
