…the Müngsten Viaduct Park (“BRÜCKENPARK MÜNGSTEN”)
The Müngsten Viaduct Park lies right at the “triangle point” where the cities of Remscheid, Solingen and Wuppertal meet. The park extends to the base of the Müngsten Viaduct, Germany’s highest railway bridge, whose lacy steel structure spans the steep, wooded Wupper Valley. The Müngsten Viaduct Park offers visitors an attractive mix of historically significant and architecturally interesting structures, a varied park landscape along the Wupper banks and pristine nature surrounding the park. Balconies above the water offer a variety of spectacular views, benches and lounge chairs invite passers-by to rest and relax, and the information and puzzle panels posted throughout the park recount fascinating stories and historical details from the past of this location. The site also offers a restaurant, and anyone who desires an overview of the valley between Burg and Müngsten can examine the 3D topographic model located in the plaza between Schaltkotten and Haus Müngsten. At the end of the park, the ferryman transports visitors over the Wupper via the hanging ferry.
Further information about the Müngsten Viaduct Park and its sights is available using the barrier-free app “Brückenpark Müngsten”, created by the Biologische Station Mittlere Wupper and at the regional tourist office Bergisches Land Tourismus Marketing e.V. (www.die-bergischen-drei.de).
