Rendsburg is in Schleswig-Holstein.
Rendsburg High BridgeThe longest railway bridge in Europe.
Longest bench in the worldA 575.75 m long wooden bench along Kiel Canal.
Kiel Canal Pedestrian TunnelLongest pedestrian tunnel in the world. Four escalators (each 55 m long) and a 130m long tunnel tube.
Rendsburg railway loopA perhaps bizarre consequence of the construction/expansion of the Canal is this railway loop in the middle of famously flat as a pancake Schleswig Holstein. The Kaiser wanted his newest warships to pass through the canal and as such bridges had to achieve a height of 50 meters or more. But as the existing station was not supposed to be moved, some method had to be devised for trains to gain fifty meters of altitude over a relatively short stretch of distance. This loop is - to the delight of railway enthusiasts - the consequence.
SchiffsbegrüßungsanlageBuilt in the 1990s this is one of only two "ship welcoming machines" in Germany. It plays the anthem and does a thing with the flag of the country of the ships that pass.
