Building Germany’s largest and most innovative infrastructure project

2 April 2013  •  Author(s): Olaf Drescher, Head Project Manager for VDE 8, DB ProjektBau GmbH

The Nuremberg-Berlin Project (VDE 8) is Germany’s largest and most innovative infrastructure project with 56km of tunnel and 27km of viaduct. With the breakthrough in the 824m-long Höhnberg Tunnel in Upper Franconia on 3 August 2012, the last of the 56km of tunnels in this project was completed – a significant milestone in the major new rail link between Munich and Berlin.

Investment for the project amounts to €10 billion from the Federal Republic of Germany, the European Union and Deutsche Bahn AG.
