    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.

    The Altenbekener Viadukt, also known as the Bekeviadukt or Großer Viadukt Altenbeken, is a bridge structure in the North Rhine-Westphalian district of Paderborn. The viaduct spans the Beketal west of Altenbeken with 24 arches on the double-track Hamm – Warburg railway in front of the Egge Mountains. The 482 m long vault bridge is Europe's longest limestone bridge. [1]

    The structure erected in the 1850s is one of the oldest witnesses to the history of the railways in Germany. As a symbol of Altenbeken, it is shown in a stylized form in the municipality's coat of arms.

    The viaduct was destroyed in the Second World War by Allied air raids in November 1944 and was only rebuilt in its present form in autumn 1950.

    Imposing building.
    You should also take the time to the viewing platform.
    It's a steep climb, but worth it.
