    The largest brick bridge in the world is very impressive. It spans the river Göltzsch and is one of the oldest railway bridges in Germany. It is considered a landmark of the Vogtland.

    This is the largest brick bridge in the world, simply built to a gigantic size around 1850 and refurbished in the new millennium

    Very beautiful and historical Akvedukt. If you have the time, I also recommend the side up, because there is a nice overview of the valley offered.
