Eglisau Railway Viaduct

The Zurich to Schaffhausen line crosses the 50-metre-high railway viaduct at Eglisau. A landmark of this small town on the Rhine, it is one of the most important bridges on the entire Swiss rail network. The 457-metre iron truss bridge spans the valley across nine slender limestone arches. It was built between 1895 and 1897 by the then Swiss Northeastern Railway.
