A beautiful old bridge that connects the old and new parts of Heidleberg across the Neckar River. At one end of this old bridge stands what remains of the city gates. Two towers that allowed entry into the city. The towers were currently under renovation...More

Amazing view of the Heideberer castle from the bridge! The bridge itself is like a fairytale! Very romanic and worth walking over it 😍

We walked back and forth on this bridge many times while in Heidelberg. It was partially under construction while we were visiting so it was not easy to get a good photo of the arches. It is a lovely bridge!

This bridge is no architectural marvel and there's more people on it than on other bridges :-) If you're only in Heidelberg for a short while, use your time to visit the city centre's less obvious marvels.

When we arrived, the gate for the bridge was going through renovation. However, we were able to see the castle from the front and the old city, It's FREE.

Nice walking area, with a great view to the castle. You can take wonderful photos. The view to the mountains covered in green is gorgeous

The old bridge, like the castle and old city, is a must see in Heidelberg. Only the middle span was destroyed during WWII. The remaining portions are relatively 'original' and provide the classic, old world feel you can only get in the most beautiful places...More

The moment I got down from the bus, I knew this was the bridge I want to photograph. Something about this historic bridge across the neckar river screams romance. Unfortunately it was raining heavily for the time I was there and couldn't click decent photos...More
