Doppelstockbrücke Alf/Bullay, also known as Brunnthaler Viaduct or Bullay Viaduct is a remarkable double-deck wrought iron railway bridge spanning the River Mosel in Germany. Built in 1866, it was the first double-deck bridge of its kind in Europe and has become an emblem of the picturesque town of Zell. Stretching 543 metres (1,781 ft) in length and 92 metres (302 ft) in height, the Upper Deck carries a single track railway line running from Trier to Koblenz and the Lower Deck carries two lanes of vehicular traffic. As you stand on the bridge or on the banks of the Mosel below, you can marvel at the stout brick arches and delicate wrought iron tracery which lend the structure its unique graceful beauty.
