Thrills in the Bergisches Land Region – the Müngsten Bridge Climb!

Wuppertal, Germany, 11 April 2022

Probes for Wall Thickness Measurement

The Bergisches Land region with the cities of Remscheid, Solingen and Wuppertal has one more attraction.
Germany‘s highest railway bridge (107 m) has connected the cities of Remscheid and Solingen since 1897 and spans the Wupper valley with a length of 465 m.
Against much opposition, the DEEPWOOD company is now able to offer the climb at the Müngsten Bridge. The Bridge Climb of the Sydney Harbour Bridge served as a famous model. A removable staircase and a viewing platform were built into the historic bridge. The climb is done in a group with an experienced guide and you are secured by ropes. Reportedly, only one participant has turned back during the climb since the opening. KARL DEUTSCH now secured tickets for all employees who are free from giddiness in the 2022 season.
The Müngsten Bridge was built by the MAN company (Maschinenfabrik Augsburg-Nürnberg) in only four years from approx. 5000 tonnes of steel. The fragilelooking steel elements were connected with 950,000 rivets. The last rivet is said to have been made of gold – but it was not found despite an intensive search. In the
Bergisches Land region, efforts have been underway for some time to have the Müngsten Bridge recognised as a World Heritage Site along with five other spectacular European bridges.



Since its foundation in 1949, the owner-managed company KARL DEUTSCH has been engaged in the development and manufacture of equipment for non-destructive material testing. Mobile testing devices, stationary testing systems, sensors and chemical crack detection media for the testing methods UT, MT and PT are manufactured in two plants in Wuppertal by 130 motivated employees. Another 20 employees in foreign offices and a worldwide dealer network support the export business, which accounts for more than 60% of the turnover. Characterized by continuous innovation and reliability of the products, the brands ECHOGRAPH, ECHOMETER, LEPTOSKOP, DEUTROFLUX, FLUXA, KD-CHECK and RMG are internationally known today.
