Around 11,000 of Germany's 25,000 rail bridges are over 100 years old. Some 4% of them are in unsatisfactory condition and represent a rehabilitation value of €7.3 billion, according to 2021 reports from the website Behoerden Spiegel, citing data from the federal government.

Germany's waterways tell a similar story: Many bridges, locks and dams are old and in need of repair.



Germany's infrastructure may need some repairs, but it is nowhere near the absolute deterioration of the American infrastructure. Compare America's proposed infrastructure bill of over $2 trillion to Germany's proposed infrastructure repairs of $324 billion. And Germany will get more for their money than America.
