    The Müngsten Bridge (formerly Kaiser Wilhelm Bridge) is the highest railway bridge in Germany.

    The steel arch bridge is part of the railway line Wuppertal-Oberbarmen-Solingen (KBS 458). This is used in regular operation of the S-Bahn line S 7 of the S-Bahn Rhein-Ruhr - lack of electrification with diesel railcars. The bridge spans the valley of the Wupper in the immediate vicinity of the station Solingen-Schaberg at a height of 107 m between the cities of Remscheid and Solingen.

    The bridge is a nice introduction to a tour down the river Wupper. It goes without great differences in height along the scenic valley past an old Kotten (museum grinding) and appealing inns.
    I came with the S-Bahn to Solingen Hbf (Ohligs). From there, it's a bit painstaking through the city up the mountain towards Müngstener bridge. But then downhill to Wuppertal and, as I said, enjoyable again towards the main station.
    If the Kraxelei in Ohligs is too much can also go by bus to the bridge park.

    The Brückenpark Müngsten is located between Solingen & Remscheid. At 107 meters, the local Müngsten Bridge is still the highest steel grid bridge in Germany and measures 465 meters in length. A highlight not only for railway enthusiasts

    You really have to go there. Germany's largest railway bridge - and is also aufgehubscht again. The food is ok. It is great that you can also directly to the water.

    On the bridge, the view is great and below it is also quite nice, so on the Wupper in the meadow.

    Great building - you have to see it. Or even better: take the train over it.

    Very nice environment. Due to Corona, the suspension ferry only took two people at a time and the line was just too long. But the path through the forest on the right side of the river (west side towards the castle) was beautiful and challenging on the racing bike. Having to get off once to go up a flight of stairs.

    Not exactly an insider tip, but a visit to the Brückpark is still worthwhile because of the gastronomic options and, of course, because there are several ways to do it on foot or by bike.

    The ferry to the other side may only take a few people because of Corona, so there may be waiting times.

    Update May 2021, ferry, stairs, tree
    Hello, This is one of the most beautiful tours along the Wupper - but be careful: the ferry over the Wupper is currently closed and there is no bridge at the point.
    If you continue down the river on the right-hand side the path on the first part is in a very bad condition and after 1 km there is a staircase with about 15 steps that you cannot bypass.
    1 km further a very large tree fell over the path and you have to lift the bike over the tree ...... so if you can handle it, this is a great tour

    The Müngstener Brücke, the highest railway bridge in Germany. Although it attracts a lot of tourists in every season, it is not too crowded. Gastronomy and sunbathing lawns directly on the Wupper with a view of the bridge
