Moseltalbrücke (A 61)
The Moselle Valley Bridge is the crossing of the federal highway 61 over the Moselle and at the same time connects the Hunsrück with the Eifel. The highway bridge is located between the communities of Dieblich and Winningen. The Moselle Valley Bridge was built between 1969 and 1972 by order of the Federal Ministry of Transport in the course of the new construction of the Federal Highway 61. It is a beam bridge made of steel with foundations of five piers and two abutments made of reinforced concrete using a combined slip and climbing formwork. The bridge is 935 meters long and 30.5 meters wide. The maximum height of the roadway above ground is 136 meters. Directly at the Moselle Valley Bridge, there are rest stops on both sides of the highway in a northerly direction, each with a viewpoint of the bridge and the Moselle Valley. Furthermore, a footpath leads under the bridge to the other side of the highway. This footpath is also part of stage 23 of the Moselsteig from Kobern-Gondorf to Winningen. Somewhat secluded below the rest stop "Aussichtspunkt Moseltal" Ost (driving direction north) are the steep slopes of the Winninger Hamm. From the terraces there, you have a view of the Mosel Valley Bridge in its entire length. At the rest stop "Aussichtspunkt Moseltal" Ost there is an archaeological site. Here you can find the wall remains of a Roman mansion from the time around 200 AD and a cellar. The area on the left bank of the Rhine was a Roman province at that time, namely Germania superior on the Upper Rhine.
