Rendsburg, Germany

Guide for the rail traveller


Local languageGerman
Country Germany


Booze, food and Europe’s longest railway bridge characterise Rendsburg in northern Germany. The local Whisky Gallery has an impressive 4,700 different whiskies, many of which you can sample. Hospitality and food are taken very seriously here, and cooking is hearty and filling, using fresh local produce such as fish from the Kiel Canal.

The Rendsburgh High Bridge stands tall at 41m over the canal and has been affectionately nicknamed the ‘Iron Lady’. Built in 1913 it’s still fully operational, and carries trains that link to Flensburg near the Danish border. For examples of period architecture, the old town has retained many 17th century buildings, and a helpful blue line painted on the pavement guides visitors around all the main attractions.
