    The old tunnels are converted to walkways / viewing places when a new tunnel - deep in the rock - is completed:

    One lane road - no traffic control devices. Give a toot of the horn and keep moving if you don't hear a toot back.

    Ich bin oft in Freiberg. Einmal in Erzgebirge.

    Where in Saxony is this? Close to which city? Unfortunately, I've never been there.

    The Spray tunnel, near Zeehan on the west coast of Tasmania.

    It is an old tramway tunnel put in to service the "Spray" Mine, the strange cross section is to allow the passage of a boiler used at the mine.

    This isn't realy a tunnel as such as you can't travel in it without a key to get in.
    It is a tunnel put in to assist in the construction of a hydro power station in Tasmania, called "Poatina" which is supposed to be the local aboriginal word for "hole in the ground"

    The old Freiberg is one of the nicest towns in GER! A friend of mine is an geologie ingeneer and told me much about the old silvermines and its explorement. That´s the reason why Freiberg WAS a rich town.

    Have you ever visited Schloß Augustusburg? In Winter? With your motorbike? :D

    No. :cry

    Thanks to the generosity of a European Advrider, my wife and I got to ride in his spare RT through Bavaria. Waaay cool. :thumb

    But nowhere else in Europe. Saxony, Austria, Italy, France, and Spain are calling me, though. :nod

    Here's one I took when riding a rented CBR1100XX Blackbird over the Passo di Tremalzo in the northern italian alps.

    And one riding my R1100S through the Chesapeke Bay Bridge/Tunnel.

    The most exciting tunnel/tunnels that I've experienced. It was somewhere in northern central Italy -- near Bolzano I think. U-turns in tunnels! There are probably 8 or 10 one-way tunnels as the road switchbacks down a narrow ravine. Pretty nutty road builders, those italians.

    Near Dayton, Washington.
