Karnin lift bridge

Constructed in 1933, the Karnin Lift Bridge is a railway bridge in Germany that allowed rail traffic over the Peenestrom River and opened up the seaside resorts on the Baltic Sea coast.

The Wehrmacht blew up large parts of the bridge in 1945, leaving only the 35-meter-high steel construction with the lift mechanism standing.


The tracks of the former Karnin stop, near the banks of the Peenestrom, end.

On the alternative route, the train connection between Berlin and the East Coast takes 4 hours. An action committee is campaigning to reconstruct the old railway line, which would halve the travel time.
