The second highest of 3 large concrete arch bridges that run along the side of a steep mountain slope on the spectacular Tauern railway in Austria, Lindischgraben has one of Europe’s longest railway arch bridge spans at 505 feet (154 mtrs). All 3 bridges were part of a 1971 realignment project that bypassed at least half a dozen tunnels as well as a tight horseshoe turn within each river gorge. The original single track line was also doubled. The highest of the 3 arches is the Pfaffenberg-Zwenberg-Brücke at 394 ft. (120 mtrs) while the double arched Falkenstein Brücke is the third highest at just 213 feet (65 mtrs).
