About this spot
You can climb the 'pont du fer' (railwaybridge) from either side of the river (there is a separated walkway on the bridge - completely safe).
From the bridge you get a nice view on the Huy Waterfront.

The first railway bridge (Landen-Ciney line) built
in 1872, it was a bridge in metal latticework. in 1914 Belgian citizens have blown up the bridge to prevent the advance of the Germans. Into the current bridge natural stone dates from 1924. It is for pedestrians accessible. The bridge
ends in a tunnel that is under the 'Mont Picard'
excavated. It is 175 m long and the base is 8 m wide. This tunnel is not accessible to pedestrians.
