Save the Teufelsgraben Bridge
Tamped concrete aqueduct from 1890 Constructions dating from the early years of concrete are rare in Germany. This makes it all the more regrettable that a prime example of tamped concrete is to fall victim to the pickaxe, namely the aqueduct between Munich and Mangfall, built in 1890.
Munich as the owner of the bridge has a special cultural responsibility to preserve this original monument. The Teufelsgraben bridge is an excellent testimonial to the history of building technology and to the history of the German construction industry: It has to be preserved!
