Fish belly bridge Meinerzhagen-Scherl


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

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

The steel truss is supplemented by a solid arch bridge adjoining it to the west, consisting of two bridge arches with 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 Volmequelle, which is located nearby, you can marvel at the magnificent view of this bridge structure!
