Walk slowly down Steingasse, with your back towards Markt Platz and the church. Go through the gates to the bridge (the Salt and Pepper mills as they are called), walk half way up the bridge - and then - TURN AROUND!

Being there during sunset was magical. The scenery on both sides of the bridges is so awesome we took 100+ photos and sat there until the sun was fully set. A magical place where you can only imagine if you are there. Go now!

This nice old bridge is a stop you have to include into your travel plans. It has very nice old towers at the end towards the old town and a perfect view to the castle.

Lovely views of the river and the castle. This is a must visit place while in the city. The gates to the town are stunning too.

Take pictures all along the walk. The bridge gates are beautiful and the views of the city and river are picturesque. If you are adventurous, you can walk up the hill opposite the city for additional views.

The old bridge is so picturesque and old-Europe. The river is wide, and the bridge is long, taking you to the gates of the old city.
