“A wonderful piece of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

This structure is a pedestrian crossing of the River Neckar. Full of history during the wars and a stunning piece of history marking the old town of Heidelberg. Stay in the old town, learn the history, you can shop in the main modern street just around the corner, but become a local, eat in the market plaza and visit the castle.

“Nice bridge”

Don't miss the statue of the monkey with the mirror (at the foot of the bridge). Nice view on the city and the castle

“Beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

This is worth visiting both in the day and at night. The view of the castle from the far side of the bridge, is spectacular in the evening.

“Charming stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2011

This is one of the Heidelberg attractions that can be fully absorbed in less than an hour. Fantastic views and the bridge is in walking distance of many other attractions. Make sure you get your pic taken with the bridge monkey.
