Description

The 59-metre-long and 76-metre-high Kylling Bridge is a remarkable feat of engineering. The bridge was built between 1913 and 1922 by the local population, with the help of hired experts. Exactly cut blocks of stone were transported 3 kilometres by rail to the construction site and placed one on top of the other to make the country's second highest arched stone bridge. The Raumabanen railway crosses the bridge daily.
