Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The G ltzsch Viaduct is a railway bridge in Germany. It is the largest brick-built bridge in the world, and for a time it was the tallest railway bridge in the world. It spans the valley of the G ltzsch River between Mylau and Netzschkau, around 4 kilometres east of Reichenbach im Vogtland in the German Free State of Saxony. It was built between 1846 and 1851 as part of the railway between Saxony and Bavaria. It is currently part of the Leipzig-Hof line, near the Netzschkau station. About 10 kilometres south, the Elster Viaduct was built for the same line and is quite similar to the G ltzsch Viaduct. G ltzsch Viaduct is also the name of a much smaller viaduct built in 1938 where Bundesautobahn 72 crosses the G ltzsch River. It sits about 10 km due southeast near the village of Weissensand. G ltzsch Viaduct was also the name of a terminus opened in 1895 on the Reichenbach-G ltzsch Viaduct railway in the G ltzsch valley below the railway bridge. From here, trains departed to the central station of Reichenbach im Vogtland and to Lengenfeld.
