A memorable piece of engineering! Impossible to miss as one drives in off the A5 into Chaumont. Hugely long and 3 tiered, mostly. Wonderful!

This is supposed to be the biggest attraction in town, so why was it so hard to find? Sign posting was really poor. Also we understood you could walk along inside the viaduct but couldn't find the way to the entrance, so improvements needed here...More

Driving down from the roundabout suddenly you see this incredible structure. We had to stop and explore this building and take pictures from all sides!

I saw the Viaduc at night when arriving in Chaumont. Thanks to the lights, it's great to see when it's dark! Nice welcome in Chaumont :)

Built to facilitate the birth of the railways this wonder of engineering still enables trains bound for Basel to whizz by Worth a stop, a walk about especially for the beautiful perspective pictures that can be taken

Certainly worth looking at this enormous structure which spans the valley outside Charmont and the stonework was in very good condition.

The road passing under the viaduct has parking space on the approach. Interesting history best sen on line if you can't read the local information which is in French
