    Tunnel, filled with fog makes for very special photo effects (and makes flash photography impossible).

    Rail-tunnel built in 1884. In 1904 a second tunnel was built a few metres East of the existing tunnel.

    In WWII, in May 1944 they removed the tracks from the east tunnel, and after 3 months of construction slave labourers started the production of the Me 262 jet fighter.

    In March 1945, production was transferred to an iron mine in Kahla, Thüringen.

    I have hints that the last passenger trains passed the tunnel in 1979, the last freight train in 1984.
