At this place close to the village Langå the railway crosses the river Gudenåen, the longest river in Denmark. Actually it is the only water which can be called a river in Denmark.

The place has a part in the Danish history because it was here the first serious resistance against the German occupation of Denmark during World War II took place.

Much of the transports of troops and material to the north of Denmark had to pass the bridges at Langå. The night of Nov. 18, 1943 a small local resistance group blows up the 3 bridges. 3 of them are arrested by Gestapo already the day after, one 2 weeks later and the last 2 managed to flee to Sweden after being hunted by the Germans. One of them, Jørgen Røjel still lives and is a famous doctor and writer.
2 of the arrested were condemned to death together with 3 other resistance fighters and executed at Skæring Hede December 2 1943.

The red bridge you see in the panorama is the bridge which got the least damage. It could be taken in use again after 2 weeks. This bridge is built 1862 and is the oldest Iron plate bridge in Denmark. It was already blown up first time during the German-Danish War of 1864. After World War II it was built up again and it is today a protected Cultural Heritage.

The 2 other bridges do not exist any more. You can see the remains of one of them to the left.
The bridge in the background was inaugurated in 1952 and is still used. This is also where all sea trout stop for a break which means that the place can be crowded with fish as well as fishermen.
