    The Seseke Bridge, also called the Five-arch Bridge, is one of the oldest railway bridges in Germany still in operation and in its original state. It is located in Kamen and crosses the Seseke.It was built in 1846 for the Cologne-Minden Railway Company as one of the 14 bridges on the Duisburg-Wanne-Dortmund-Hamm trunk line. While iron bridges have been built in England since the beginning of the 1830s, only stone bridges were built in Germany. Only a short time later, Casper Harkort opened the first renowned iron bridge construction site in Wetter an der Ruhr.The Seseke Bridge is therefore made of stone in a simple, classicist design language. The five bows are stored on pillars. The marshy ground required a foundation by oak piles. Three of the pillars were built as streamers, two as receiving waters. Since the sewer has been channeled as a result of subsidence, none of the pillars are left in the water.
