Fish belly bridge Meinerzhagen-Scherl


Sauerland-Seen / Outdooractive POI / Fish belly bridge Meinerzhagen-Scherl

The railroad bridge is located east of Meinerzhagen on the single-track DB branch line Meinerzhagen-Krummenerl. It was built between 1912 and 1914. The characteristic feature of the bridge is the steel truss, which consists of straight superstructures on two sections and a downward-pointing fish-bellied girder in between.

The steel truss is supplemented by a solid arch bridge to the west, consisting of two arches with a concrete core and quarry stone cladding. There are only a small number of bridges with such supporting structures in the Federal Republic of Germany. The bridge is therefore protected as a technical monument.

During a walk to the nearby Volmequelle, you can marvel at the magnificent views of this bridge structure!
