In lofty heights

A 485 m long bridge spans across the Filstal valley on the Drackensteiner slope, a spectacular structure with a height of up to 85 m. In Germany there are only two railway bridges that are higher. Another special feature of the bridge is that it connects two tunnels: the Boßler Tunnel and the Steinbühltunnel. The ICE will cross the bridge at a speed of about 250 km/h. The bridge consists of two separate supporting structures 30 m apart. Each of them has a separate tunnel tube.
