Engineering makes nature perceptible
After all, the first arch bridge was built over 115 years ago and was already considered a symbol of engineering skills and pioneering spirit back then. The new bridge with a span of seven meters remains true to this tradition. For the construction of the new bridge and the securing of the walkway, thyssenkrupp Schulte, together with the construction company Züblin, used almost seven tons of steel as part of a sponsorship.
In such a harsh and humid mountain environment, particularly high demands are placed on the quality of the material. No compromises are allowed in terms of weather resistance and load-bearing capacity; after all, the safety of tens of thousands of visitors must be guaranteed every year. The steel processed and provided by thyssenkrupp Schulte and Züblin for optimum corrosion protection was flown by helicopter to Germany's highest construction site and is now used in girders, web plates, posts, and handrails.
Nature – History – Innovation
Often the most impressive views are in the most remote places. Making them safely accessible to people requires high-quality materials, the best engineers, and technological innovation. The Höllentalklamm is a place where the forces of nature meet history and technological progress. Thanks to steel supplied by thyssenkrupp, 115 years after the first Bogenbrücke was built, the hiking trail is still a destination with breath-taking views for nature-loving and curious walkers, hikers, and tourists, making it a unique vacation experience.
