Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Due to the delays of course the Fulda-Wuertzburg section was opened first.  So the photo is somewhere between 1988 and 1991?

Using Wikipedia's page on the Hannover-Wuertzburg line (http://www.answers.com/topic/hanover-w-rzburg-high-speed-rail-line) and the visible kilometer marker (291.5) on the brige I'll say that it's the Maintalbrücke in Gemünden.  The bridge has no supports in the river itself to allow for barge traffic on the Main River.

The road at the far end of the bridge matches that of the arial view.
