Sight 1: Feldchenbahnbrücke

Show sight on map

The Feldchenbahnbrücke not far from the Dortmund district of Aplerbeck is a listed brick arch bridge. It is the last surviving relic of the connecting line built between 1867 and 1870 from the Vereinigte Schürbank & Charlottenburg colliery to the Dortmund–Soest railway. The approximately 1600-metre-long, single-track railway line, which merged into the main line about 100 metres west of Aplerbeck station until its closure, formed almost an S-shape. Coming from the colliery, the Feldchenbahn bridge bridges the Emscher, which is still very young at this point, after a good 700 metres.
