Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The Hubertus Viaduct (Hubertusschluchtbrücke) leads in a curve over the Hubertusschlucht. The structure has six openings over a length of 150 m and a height of 50 m. At the time of construction it was one of the highest stone arch bridges in Germany.The bridge was built from embossed red sandstone blocks from the Neckar region. The undersides of the arches are faced with brick. Iron girders for the falsework protrude from the pillars at the level of the fighter. The concluding stepped console frieze on both sides of the bridge carries side paths secured by iron bars. Every second bridge pillar is closed by a stepped cantilevered stone parapet.The path through the Hubertus Gorge is not without it, especially upwards you have to conquer over 100 meters in altitude quite steeply.
